Helpful conversations and dedicated support
Coaching provides open, honest conversations between people at all levels throughout our organization. This ranges from daily informal on-the-job discussions, through project feedback and periodic formal performance reviews.
We’ll work with you closely in the early weeks and months. You’ll have a counselor, who’ll put time and effort into becoming an expert in you and your career development. They’ll work with you to consider all the feedback you receive and help you find the career path that will take you in the right direction.
You’ll progress fast here because we provide our people with the highest quality feedback and support. We have increased our investment in formal coaching and we also appoint coaching champions to create programs and give feedback to leadership.
Our mentoring program offers a chance for a combination of formal, structured conversations and less formal, ad-hoc contact. And as your experience here grows, you’ll be able to pass your own knowledge on to new starters.
On-the-job coaching conversations are hands-on interactions that occur in the context of daily work, that help you gain a broader perspective, increase clarity and address particular issues and challenges.
This practical, ongoing learning will improve your performance and help you get things right, the first time. Working with a colleague who can coach you on a work-related issue will often help you gain deeper insight into your own performance. It’s one of the best ways to pick up gems of practical knowledge that you’ll use time and time again.
Counseling – performance reviews
Performance conversations allow you and your counselor to look back and evaluate your performance by bringing together and considering multiple views. They’re an excellent way to identify where to focus your development efforts — so your next assignment can help you improve performance further.
Counseling – career development
In addition to performance reviews, career development conversations are also an important aspect of coaching at EY. These conversations should challenge you to explore your individual interests, aspirations, needs and options. They also create meaningful goals — both from an annual and a longer-term perspective.
Mentoring provides support, insights and practical advice on a variety of professional development and career topics. At EY, we encourage our experienced professionals to provide mentoring to less experienced colleagues, through initiatives such as the Career Advisor program.
