Learn to Fly: Gold in Talent Management – Best Advance in Employee Engagement - Brandon Hall Group
The Learn to Fly program was created back in 2017 under the sponsorship of the Leadership Board, with the purpose to equip new Barilla employees all over the world with solid management skills and to prepare them to become the leaders of the future.
To achieve these objectives, together with our long-term partner Cegos, we developed and delivered four learning activities: Time Management, Smart Communication, Problem Solving and Decision Making and Presentation Advantage.
Supported by all local HR Business Partners, these programs have been delivered in all Barilla offices with more than one thousand participants, reaching more than 90% of the target population.
