Learning and Development
At Crescent Point, we believe in the ongoing training of our most valuable resource: our people. In 2016, we launched an extensive internal learning and development program for all of our employees. Our key attributes of entrepreneurial spirit, positive attitude, teamwork, communication, accountability, integrity and trust were used to create content specific to Crescent Point for 14 different courses last year. Bringing business focused content in house is a more cost effective way for us to ensure that staff are equipped with the skills needed to rise to the opportunities and challenges in our current marketplace while setting them up for future success.
In 2016, three corporate learning tracks were offered to our employees:
Additional training, designed to suit specific teams within the business, regardless of location, was offered upon request.
In 2017, we are continuing the program with an emphasis on innovation and entrepreneurism. In that spirit, we’ve partnered with the University of Calgary’s Haskayne School of Business to develop and offer an Advanced Finance certificate, taught in-house at Crescent Point’s offices.
In addition to our internal learning and development initiatives, employees may seek external learning opportunities including formal training, seminars, conferences and continuing education that enhance the skills and knowledge necessary to make a continuing contribution to both the work of Crescent Point and their own personal development.
