Luxottica aims to guarantee its employees the widest possible freedom of choice in exploring the organization because it is convinced that the real key to the company’s success lies in people’s capacity to take on different roles within the organization.
Career paths in Luxottica are designed to facilitate people’s growth (vertical development) and mobility (horizontal development). Freedom to move into adjacent functions, whether in the same or a different division, means the organizational map is open to everyone. And the routes connecting functions are clearly explicit.
That people have the opportunity to try themselves in new roles whilst pursuing an underlying career path is a vital element in a manager’s vision. The frequent occasions for feedback between managers and their teams make it possible to coordinate individuals’ development projects with the career paths designed by the organization.
A manager’s personal input is to promote a culture that builds on success by being open to change. Luxottica career paths are the framework of a talent management strategy genuinely geared to developing people for the global market.
