Addressing Future Business Needs Now: High IMPACT Coaching Case Study
Veolia, a global leader in optimized resource management with over 163,000 employees worldwide, had a growing need to address business changes and a pending talent gap to ensure bench strength in their succession pipeline. A formal development program was needed due to:
- Sudden growth experienced through an acquisition.
- Launch of a new One Veolia vision for the organization’s three distinct divisions.
- Looming leadership gap, as many leaders were eligible for retirement within five years – leaving an insufficient talent pool for critical roles.
“When we looked at the metrics, we realized we had 35-50% gaps in talent in some areas due to impending Baby Boomer retirements,” shares Augie Shulke, CHRO at Veolia. “We knew we had to do something about that.” In order to continue to grow business, Veolia needed to accelerate the development of their emerging leaders and drive retention of high-potentials through a centralized program.
“Veolia desired a true partnership with their leadership development provider. Together, we determined the current state of the organization and ways to tailor our program to their exact needs,” shares Marcia Mueller, VP of Leadership Development at IMPACT Group. “This enabled IMPACT Group to develop the best framework possible to address their imminent leadership gaps.”
