The HR function in Unilever wanted to improve their levels of Business Acumen, to help HR managers to better understand what drives Unilever’s business performance, so that they could play a stronger part in decision-making.
What MTP Delivered
We worked with Unilever’s HR Academy to create various interventions. These included:
- short (30 min) virtual sessions, included as part of the global “HR Learning Week”
- a modular course for more junior managers, run virtually using Live Meeting
- a two-day face-to-face course for senior managers
The course content moved from the principles of financial measurement (at the basic end) to how HR can create value in the business (at the top end).
The course was closely tailored to Unilever’s business model, with highly interactive exercises to consolidate learning.
What participants said
