Learning and development is focused around four key pillars
Holcim Business School
Learning never stops at Holcim – even for our senior leaders. The successful implementation of our “Strategy 2025 – Accelerating Green Growth” largely depends on ensuring the Group’s senior leaders have the right leadership skills, resources, knowledge, and networks. It’s with this in mind that the Holcim Business School was launched in 2018, in close collaboration with Canada’s Ivey Business School. Every year, our senior leaders come together for a module which is taught by an external expert and our CEO and Executive Committee. We are proud to have been recognized by the European Foundation for Management Development in 2020.
