Recognizing that our people are the foundation of our success, Rayonier strives to foster an environment that embraces and promotes employee growth and development. Our focus is to unlock the full potential of our employees by ensuring that they have the necessary skills and capabilities to achieve their professional goals, while also preparing our next generation of leaders. In order to achieve these objectives, we provide career development planning tools and resources focused on individual development and management continuity. These plans help to identify additional experiences and training necessary to build on technical, behavioral and leadership competencies that are essential for an individual's long-term success.
We offer a comprehensive approach to training and development which includes micro- and on-demand learning, classroom programs, coaching and mentoring, cross-functional assignments and conferences. We also provide a tuition reimbursement program, which reimburses 80% of the costs of approved degree programs. Additionally, our Senior Manager, Employee Experience and Development serves as a dedicated career advisor to employees.
For our current and emerging leaders, we provide robust training programs and development opportunities that enhance leadership effectiveness. Our training programs include classes on supervisory skills, performance management, coaching essentials, situational leadership, leading with a strategic purpose, team leadership, conflict management and sales & marketing for leaders. We also provide executive coaching and 360 degree feedback programs on an as needed basis to further enhance leadership capabilities.
Our development programs are an integral part of our succession planning. Our succession planning program involves identifying key leadership positions throughout the organization, and identifying development activities to ensure we have a pipeline of talented professionals prepared for these roles in the future. We report on our succession planning and development progress to our Board at least annually.
