Befesa’s training plan is not the only means of identifying improvement opportunities for employees. Our annual assessment process, which analyses the strategic competencies that are important to the company.

The same process also helps us to detect employees with the potential to take on new responsibilities that will ensure the company is always prepared to cover any vacancies, when required.
A vital element of the Annual Evaluation Process is the feedback the supervisor gives to the employee being appraised, which can be used to establish a personal improvement plan. In this conversation, the development of the person and how Befesa can support this development is key.
