Operations first out
Within Operations, the heart of our business, we have to secure a strong successors plan and strengthen the internal leader pipeline. Which of course goes for the entire organization, but Operations and Operations Finance will be first out. The plan is to regularly have Scandi Standards leadership graduates in several functions of the business in the future. To ensure a holistic view and understanding of the organization, the program is a Group program involving cross country experience.
Per Alan Jensen, COO at Scandi Standard, is very much involved in the program:
– From day one, the Graduate will be delivering results as a true team member in Scandi Standard. The manager and the mentor will support the student on his or her development journey.
