3.5. Training and fostering professional talent
3.5.1. Training
BME regards the training of its employees as an integral
part of their professional development and the educa-
tional activities it imparts as a boost to the individual’s
skills, which contributes to the team’s effectiveness in the
achievement of its common objectives.
The Human Resources unit has promoted training and
refresher courses for its employees through the BME In-
house Training Programme and other complementary
courses. BME’s training tool contains detailed informa-
tion on this programme and those interested can regis-
ter for courses and search for relevant training activities.
All BME’s training activities are assessed to ensure the
quality of the training given, the level of satisfaction of
participants and that it is appropriate for employees’
needs. These assessments are carried out using the offi-
cial questionnaires required by the Tripartite Foundation,
quality appraisals carried out by the Human Resources
unit and assessments made by the suppliers providing
the training. The level of satisfaction among employees
is high, with employees particularly rating course organ-
isation, content and methodology, timetables, teachers,
didactic resources, facilities and technical resources.
The In-house Training Programme for 2012, which com-
plies with the requirements established in Royal Decree
395/2007, of 23 March, governing subsidies from the Tri-
partite Foundation for In-house Training (La Fundación
Tripartita para la Formación en el Empleo), and ensures
the continuity of training initiatives initiated in previous
years, introduced a new section on skills training and
e-learning methodology for those courses which could
be offered in this format.
