Kick off for the global talent program2/9/18
Volvo Financial Services has launched its first-ever Talent for Tomorrow (TFT) program. Five VFS colleagues in various points of their careers and in different locations around the globe, were selected after a comprehensive recruitment process with a cross-functional interview team.
“I am proud to work for a company where we are able to extend such a program to our employees,” says Stacey Youngdale, VP Global Talent Management and Program Manager of Talent for Tomorrow.
The five VFS colleagues in the team traveled to VFS headquarters in Greensboro, US, to meet each other and other colleagues, and plan for the program’s two-year period. Team activities included reviewing and identifying global competencies, analyzing the team’s personality profiles, developing program and professional goals, assigning mentors, discussing upcoming team projects, and team-building.
“Though we spent a relatively short amount of time together, each of us left the week with a strong sense of purpose and a strong bond to fellow teammates.” says Kevin Hendriks, one of the TFT team member who has completed a job rotation in Digital Solutions & IT, and has joined the FP&A team in Canada.
The current TFT program will run through Q3 2019. Plans for the next program are being developed and announced in late 2018.
