Top marks for Geodis management training

[ October 20, 2021   //   ]

Geodis was named ‘Best Leadership Development Program for Top Management’ at the 2021 Asia’s Training & Development Excellence Awards. Hosted by the World HRD Congress and the Employer Branding Institute, the annual event identifies outstanding talent and development initiatives and celebrates the best practices in employer branding and human resources.

The forwarder’s Executive Leadership Program for the senior management team, comprising 132 global board members and leaders, ensures GEODIS’ leaders have the skillsets and resources to make well-informed strategic decisions in a complex industry climate. The two-year program (2020-2022) is delivered by Harvard Business School and features a comprehensive curriculum covering key business issues such as customer centricity, leading in adversity, and CSR and sustainability.

Geodis’ executive vice president group human resources, Mario Ceccon, said: “This is a much-valued testament to Geodis’ continued efforts to become not just an employer of choice, but also a company that has the foresight and capabilities to take the company even further”.

President and chief executive for Asia Pacific, Onno Boots, added: “Given the persistence of change sweeping the industry, it is more crucial than ever for our team to have the skills required to respond to, what are now every-day challenges.  Training and development programs are therefore crucially important to us.  We already have plans in place to further scale up our training initiatives across all levels.”

GEODIS is currently gearing up for the next phase of its leadership program, with new modules and sessions in the pipeline to maintain the company’s competitive advantage in a post-pandemic era.
