Few organizations have the opportunity to impact belonging, equity, and access to career opportunity in the same way Marriott International does.
With hotels in over 130 countries across 32 different brands from basic to luxury, Marriott has made it a mission to create a skilled and effective frontline management team that is invested in and capable of supporting the growth of their frontline staff. Access to career opportunities consistently ranks as a key driver of retention.
Frontline managers are key to this effort. But lists of barriers to effective career development regularly include the role of managers and the lack of their ability to coach and champion staff.
In this on-demand webinar, Katie Sheketoff, Director of Global Leadership Development from Marriott and Jacob Nikolau, Head of Product Marketing from NovoEd join Matt Pittman, Principal Analyst from Brandon Hall Group™ share how Marriott and NovoEd partnered to create two frontline leader programs and how they addressed the unique challenges of launching a global program. Viewers will learn:
- How Marriott set out to address global retention challenges through leadership development
- What Marriott’s leadership philosophy – that leadership is an action rather than a title – means for culture development
- Why partnering with NovoEd is key to a successful program across the enterprise
