The situation: The organization understood that capitalizing on workforce diversity was good business. And it wanted related training to go beyond awareness and political correctness to ensure employee satisfaction and retention. The goal: To equip its diverse workforce with the tools to break through cultural or even personal barriers to successful career management and professional growth.
The approach: Recognizing that Managing Personal Growth’s (MPG) value reaches across all job functions, we worked with Osram Sylvania to customize the process to align with the objectives of the company’s diversity council. The council rolled out MPG in a targeted initiative to help women and minority employees better manage their promotions and their careers.
The results: To date, more than 1,000 employees have participated in this process. Senior leadership has committed to continuing to offer MPG as part of the company’s strategic initiatives.
