Training and Development At Burson-Marsteller, we believe that investing in our employees is reflected in the caliber of our client work. We know that smart people want more than just a job – they want the chance to make a difference. In a constantly evolving industry like ours, we know how important it is for our colleagues to have the chance to learn about the new issues and challenges of the day and step outside their usual roles to experience different aspects of our field. We offer a variety of training programs that allow for professional enrichment, with a focus on strategic client counsel, business development, people management, creativity and the business of the business. These include one-off classes, multi-session courses, self-guided tutorials, mentoring and on-the-job training. Similarly, our development plans and career discussions are designed to ensure that every colleague’s aspirations are understood by the company and that future assignments support their goals as effectively as possible. We also ensure that every individual’s current responsibilities are clearly communicated and that goals are mutually agreed.
