The development of a world-class technology company requires world-class employees, and at Telstra we are continuously working to maintain a workforce with people who have the skills, capabilities and experiences to deliver on our strategy.

As our company evolves, the size and nature of our workforce is also changing – with some positions transitioning and new roles being created. We are responding to these changes through highly responsive learning and development programs, more flexible and remote-working opportunities, and leadership development programs. We have also identified a number of strategic capabilities that will accelerate our cultural transformation, change the way we work and differentiate us from our competitors which will contribute to making Telstra a great place to work.

Progress in FY17

  • This year we have developed initiatives that will provide our employees the opportunity to control their own development, like the Employee Profile tool which will help us understand what capabilities we have across the business, and where.
  • We piloted the Telstra Leadership and Values Pulse (360) with 350 of Telstra’s senior leaders to provide feedback to them regarding how well their teams and peers see them demonstrating the Leadership Competencies and Values.
  • We committed to significant acceleration of leaders through our core Telstra Leader Program.
  • Our Leadership Program won ‘Best Talent Development program’ at the Australian Institute of Training and Development (AITD) awards
