We have implemented the iLead process to help enhance organizational talent, which is one of our business priorities.
The iLead talent pool prepares people in managerial positions and above for promotion. Participants undergo in-depth competency assessments, and work through individually tailored development plans created by our executive team. They are also paired with executive mentors for ongoing support. The intent throughout the process is to leverage individuals’ strengths, not to focus on their weaknesses.
Having piloted the iLead Accelerated Talent Pool program with our sales force in fiscal 2017, we expanded it to Operations in fiscal 2018. This is a structured training program that prepares individuals for first-level manager roles. The program includes on-the-job experience, formal training and customized development plans for each participant.
42 mentees meet with their executive mentors at least once every two months.
