New employees are greeted on Day 1 with a partial day orientation session covering the critical pieces of starting a new job.
Classroom & online learning
For developing your professional skills
Online and instructor-led classes are offered on various topics, including Business Writing, High Impact Feedback and Listening, Effective Presentation Skills and many others. We also offer hands-on learning opportunities with desktop applications, such as Microsoft® software and Adobe®.
When employees shift from being individual contributors to working in management roles, there is a small window of time for a successful transition. The first 90 days in any new management role is critical. LEADing Canon is our program for this first 90 days. There are tools, templates and guidelines for navigating your way through your first 90 days in the new role.
Business Resource Groups
For professional development
Business Resource Groups (BRGs) demonstrate the company’s commitment to diversity & inclusion and provide employees with the opportunity to connect with colleagues who share similar interests and backgrounds. Learning opportunities are designed to address the custom needs of each BRG.
For Managers, Directors and Executives
The Canon Leadership Institute for top executives focuses on different aspects of being an executive at Canon: You as a Leader, You Leading a Team, and You Leading a Business. At the Director and Manager levels, the program focuses more on the ins and outs of daily operations: managing people, providing feedback and coaching, and executing on corporate strategy.
I've had the pleasure of working for Canon for 10 years. While ingrained in the day-to-day activities of Sales and Account Management relationships, it is easy to lose track of your own personal and professional continuing education. In order to continue your success, it is key for individuals to make time for Learning & Development, and Canon invests a lot in getting this right. They immediately bring you in at the Orientation phase and keep up with you through Canon Academy, a portal that gives you unlimited access to courses to enhance your personal & professional growth. Whether you want to brush up on your Excel skills or you are looking for some pointers on your next presentation, Canon strives to produce the right training for you. Working at Canon is a great pleasure, but when you meet the people who make it happen – it's even better.
