Compensation and Benefits
Our total compensation philosophy is to pay for performance. This philosophy is used throughout the company to reward employees in alignment with company and individual performance. Your individual performance impacts your base pay, while variable pay depends on company performance. Our goal is to be competitive in each respective market.

In addition, you and your manager regularly talk about your tasks and future perspectives. An action plan will be devised which contains measurements such as trainings, internal job displacements and taking on tasks with greater responsibilities.

John Deere Learning

John Deere Learning is a virtual learning campus which promotes continuous learning aligned with the strategic direction of the business. We continue to develop colleges for major functions such as supply management, marketing, sales & customer support, and operations. Two additional colleges focus on the competencies and leadership skills that are important for all employees. Each college contains learning paths that can help you identify activities focused on personal and job-specific development needs.

Self-Assessment

Our self-assessment tools can help you gain insight into your interests and goals. You can apply these insights to your career and development planning. Self-assessment tools include a 360-degree tool and a behavioral/style assessment, as well as values and interests checklists. In addition, our intranet offers numerous links for career development, including interviewing tips and how-to guides.

Coaching

Employees may be matched up with coaches. This helps to develop trusting relationships that foster enhanced performance and improved results. With the support of seasoned professionals, you can make a smoother transition into a new position, be better equipped to handle difficult situations, manage complex projects, and deal with stress. You may choose to use these services to improve your effectiveness as supervisor or manager, leverage your strengths, organize or prioritize more efficiently, and even overcome personal limitations.

Internal Resume

You can also publish your resume on the system. Hiring managers or human resources personnel can search and review your resume when they’re looking for individuals who match the qualifications for a specific position. Through this interactive system, everyone has an equal opportunity to develop their career. Employees can use their resumes to apply for current open positions.
