2015 Sustainability Report

More

Overview

The success of our company is tied to our people. We are committed to ensuring they are safe, healthy, engaged and valued for the diverse talents they bring to PPG and are also offered development and advancement opportunities so they are equipped to make meaningful contributions, be successful, and achieve their full potential. By fostering inclusiveness, welcoming diverse perspectives and empowering our people, PPG becomes more innovative, productive and competitive.
 
We made significant progress against these commitments in 2015. Our injury and illness rate declined 11 percent over 2014, and 71 percent of our facilities had implemented a wellness program.
 
We again conducted our “Your Say” employee survey, with 88 percent of our global workforce participating. We also developed an online training module on engagement for our supervisors that was launched in early 2016.
 
Our numerous diversity councils continued their efforts to make our workplaces more diverse and inclusive. We also continued the global rollout of our online Diversity & Inclusion training module, with more than 12,700 employees completing the training by the end of 2015.
 
We accelerated our leadership development in 2015 with the introduction of a new architecture to strengthen our talent pipelines for general managers and functional leaders. We also implemented a Global Core Curriculum that serves as the foundation for all leadership development, and we conducted a global assessment of 300 high-potential individuals. We have nearly doubled our successor pipeline for senior levels and are making significant progress for the remaining levels.
