Procter & Gamble NA CBD Capability: Era of Education
The fact that training value is measurable enables the strategy to remain a priority for senior leaders at the company. And with senior leadership support comes one of the most crucial components for any successful business venture: money. P&G leaders are willing to back learning initiatives with financing when they see results.
“We invest in ourselves regularly to make sure that we have the right skills in place,” said Associate Director Valerie Brantley, a key player in the company’s ongoing conversation between the learning and development area and senior leaders. “Senior leadership support is strong, and I think it’s strong because we’ve made a conscious effort to stay closer to the business and stay focused on those business strategies and priorities that are important to the company and to the functions.”
The value of learning and development is justified via results up front followed by a demonstration of how the learning and development area can enable some of the business’ key strategies. Further, company leaders can receive up-to-the-minute metrics on their learning investments with a business impact app developed for the executives’ iPads. Leaders have learning ROI data at their fingertips, which helps to ensure a culture of learning at the company well into the future.
