Talent calling

Challenge

Intensifying competition and a rapidly changing marketplace meant that increasing leadership capability was a global priority for this multinational mobile network operator.

The Global Finance division wanted to ensure that more employees than ever before were suggested for the prestigious group wide talent programme. They needed to locate and develop their leaders so they were better equipped to lead Vodafone into the future.

Solution

A talent academy covering topics from leadership and trust to challenge and change, all mapped onto the organisation’s leadership profile, was delivered in a range of practical formats to vary energy levels and keep people engaged. This programme is now in its fourth year.

Results

Participants found the programme relevant to their particular challenges and a good opportunity to reflect on their performance and professional development.
