At Bridgestone, our mission is to serve society with superior quality, and we believe that also applies to our teammates. We want everyone to feel that they have the tools and resources to help seek out career pathing and growth opportunities in their career.
Owning Your Career Growth
To achieve our goals and yours, we’ve created a culture of regular check-ins and communication that instills trust, increases engagement, and focuses on meaningful conversations between managers and teammates around both performance and development. We enable you to take ownership of your career path with ongoing communication, regular coaching, and support from leaders.
At Bridgestone, career planning is not a one-time event – it is a continuous process where we are committed to helping our teammates by creating a culture of frequent reflection and dedicated work to help them define their unique career path for success.
We have multiple options to build a successful and long-term career. The career paths vary based on teammate needs, interests and timing of opportunities. We feel that it is imperative that our teammates continue to invest in themselves by discovering and understanding their aspirations, what types of work they enjoy and what skills they would like to develop. We strive for our teammates to intentionally develop themselves and their career.
Continuous Conversations towards Career Growth
We give teammates the tools to design individual development plans built around their preferred career path. These tools include support around mentorship opportunities, career coaching and career navigation. Instead of a formal once a year process, we have continuous, transparent opportunities for communication with coaches, mentors and managers. This advantage means that our teammates never have to wonder where they stand or wait until a single point in the year to discuss their progression towards goals and development.
Building Better Culture at Bridgestone
Our firm commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion now includes several programs that help our teammates build better ways of working with other and build strong teams full of diverse employees who bring different strengths and experiences to each role.
Programs are available to equip teammates to understand unique perspectives, implicit bias, and ways of working though instructor-lead and eLearning courses.
