Brandon Hall Excellence Awards: Cegos and Imerys rewarded for the “Lead my team” mission
World leader in mineral-based specialties for industry, Imerys chose Cegos to develop the managerial skills of 1,000 supervisors throughout in 20 countries.
This partnership resulted in “Lead my team”, a highly interactive Learning and Development program. Cegos and Imerys has just received a Brandon Hall Silver Award in the “Best Advance in Leadership Development” category.
Cegos provided the managerial tools and insights, while Imerys designed case studies and scenarios based on real life cases dealing with safety and continuous Improvement. “Lead My Team” is an integrated training approach, which goes beyond the time spent in class. Before the training, participants meet and share with their manager on their strengths and needs of improvement.
Additionally, they choose a management-oriented, safety or continuous improvement project that will be further implemented. After attending the face to face session, participants are invited to follow 2 Imerys e-learning programs: the Yellow Belt (Operational Excellence awareness program) and Imerys Safety System. 6 months later, projects are presented in front of a jury for validation. To close the loop, the participants retake the self-evaluation done at the start of the program in order to identify progress. When all these 4 steps are completed, the participant receives their Lead My Team certificate.
The deployment is being implemented within three years. By the end of the deployment, over 1 000 supervisors are expected to have attended the training.
