70-20-10 MODEL FOR LEARNING & GROWTH AT MARS

Our 70/20/10 model of learning recognizes how Associates learn best and helps make it happen. Here’s what we believe:

  • 70 percent of your learning comes from giving you the opportunity to try things out for yourself, even if it means taking a few risks.

  • 20 percent of your learning comes from the great people on your side, including mentors, managers and coaches.

  • The final 10 percent is what you gain from leading-edge classes and courses, designed by our own experts as well as leading external institutions, such as Harvard University.

IN IT FOR THE LONG HAUL, TOGETHER

Your long-term career goals are important to us. We want to make sure we’re providing the support you need to achieve your dreams so we can build a successful future, together. So everyone here — and we mean everyone — has a Personal Development Plan. Each plan sets out goals, opens up conversations about the future and serves as a trigger for salary reviews. Our world-class competency model, developed in partnership with Lominger®, spans functional areas and gives all of our 80,000 Associates a common language to talk development.
