Neste Refining the future: "Leading Forward Development Program 2012-2017"
Neste partnered with Pertec to create a development program targeting all managers globally. The program includes 180° feedback, coaching, interactive workshops, innovative learning experiences, online supporting Self-Leader tool, peer mentoring, and before and after workshop assignments. The program was developed jointly with Neste`s Human Resource leaders with important input from the CEO and Executive Board members. A team of Pertec’s international experts facilitates the program.
The feedback from the program has been very positive; the participants have appreciated the inspiring atmosphere, new insights and vision, the networking and learning from the group, the real life topics and relevance to own work. One manager described the program as “the most practical and challenging program he has ever attended”. Another one said: "I´ve been in a few different leadership trainings before and this NEXLeader is state of art, I really enjoyed every minute of this NEXLeader training." The overall opinion of the learning workshops is more than 4,5 on a scale from 1 to 5. "
I´t has been so good to see the boost to the leadership skills through the participants’ dedication in their own development. It is rewarding to see how it shows across the organization. The network initiated in the program also enables our global leaders to strengthen their connections,” stated Martina Breitenstein-Toivonen, Neste´s HR Development Manager
