Development takes place throughout the year with a variety of courses, team activities, coaching, on-the-job training and e-learning to stimulate and motivate participants in all business areas of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.

Performance and Reward

The performance of each individual employee and the 'reward' provided by the company are closely related at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. Remuneration and benefits are thus closely orientated towards personal performance, making the 'merit' principle one of the fundamental values of our corporate culture. Applying the merit principle, we should first make a contribution to the Company's success and then expect a contribution back from the Company.

The objective of remuneration is to promote and encourage the personal performance of every employee. It provides the basis for seeking further improvements of product, process and quality, therefore ensuring long-term corporate success.
