Simon Sustainability Report 2021
SIMON SUSTAINABILITY REPORT 2021
HUMAN CAPITAL DEVELOPMENT Simon has had leadership programs in place for many years, for both emerging leaders and for center managers in training. In addition, Simon has a variety of on-demand professional development resources available to all employees. Unfortunately, in 2020 most of these programs were suspended to adhere to social distancing and general group safety guidelines, and many of these suspensions remained in place through 2021. In response to this, in 2021 the Human Resources Learning &Development team successfully expanded its ability to deliver increased virtual training experiences for teams all across the Company, targeting the knowledge and skills most relevant to the unique needs of each area of our organization.
In addition, we further expanded our Simon Online Learning catalog, providing even more on-demand courses, practical tools, and other learning materials for all our employees with content ranging from leadership/soft skill development to diversity and inclusion awareness. Over 2,000 Simon employees took advantage of these online resources in 2021, accessing over 12,000 pieces of available learning and development content. Provided that health- and safety-related restrictions/advisories are lifted and remain so in 2022, HR intends to resume all of Simon’s legacy high-potential leadership development programs in 2022.
