Congratulations to the 82 professionals around the Global Studio who have been promoted to associate principal, senior associate and associate in 2016.
This year, we continue to have talents who rise above and beyond their call of duty. With a record number of appointments of 7 associate principals, 32 senior associates and 43 associates, the bar is set high for our Global Studio.
Recognising our people and their successes is key to the vision of People & Culture in unleashing the full potential within Woods Bagot through opportunities and experiences which are the reward for contribution, initiative and personal accountability as defined in one of our key fundamental cultural themes of Dynamic Careers.
Each year, local studio executives nominate individuals to be promoted as associate principals, associates and senior associates, based upon a demonstrated contribution to Woods Bagot. And with the new structured career pathway in place, there is more clarity around career paths within the network of Woods Bagot. These nominations are reviewed by regional executives before each candidate is invited to submit a business case which includes a 'Personal Contribution Statement' accompanied by an optional portfolio of work. The Board then provides final approval prior to candidates being advised of the outcome of their nomination.
