Turner & Townsend have adopted an approach to training and development of staff which is driven by a learning cycle. This starts with learning needs being identified and reviewed as part of the annual appraisal process where line managers discuss developmental needs of the employee. Employees have a Learning & Development plan which structures and guides them through their learning activities and achievements.

All Turner &Townsend offices with more than ten people around the globe have a CSR representative and each of these provides a quarterly report to the CSR committee on how they have engaged with the community where they live and work. There is also an emphasis on children and homelessness. Staff have been given total freedom to choose local charities and good causes that have popular support within their particular office. Such activities as fund raising, taking volunteer days, time given for pro bono advise are monitored via key performance indicators, with a view to achieving a consistent approach globally and demonstrating continuous improvement.
