Being able to do your work with a great deal of pleasure and energy is important for you as an individual and professional and for APG as employer and service provider. And both of us want you to use your talents to the maximum and to perform to the maximum of your potential in a sustainable way. APG will facilitate you in this respect, but as a professional you are in control and are responsible for this yourself.
The Personal Development Plan (PDP) is at the basis of your personal development. Every year, together with your manager, you determine which training or education program offers the best fit for your needs and ambition. This can be a customized program, as well as an existing corporate training program.
Corporate training programs
APG offers different corporate training programs for everyone who works for us. These are matched to your needs in each specific phase of your career. For some job groups professional training programs are mandatory. For example, when your position involves providing advice on pensions. However, for example, in the area of ICT or marketing, we also expect you to be and keep abreast of your area of expertise. In some cases mutual agreements are formulated through means of a study contract.
In addition, APG has corporate training programs that are focused on knowledge gathering or competency development. For example, a special training program, ‘The World of Pensions’, has been developed in collaboration with the University of Maastricht. This is a 5-day training course that introduces you, as a new employee, to the pension subject matter. In addition there are training programs in the area of leadership or project management.
