3:40 PM Dulux Group. HR’s role in delivering the growth imperative

Two years ago I walked into an organisation with a suite of iconic and trusted brands and a desire to grow. Names such as Dulux, Selleys, Yates, Cabot’s and B&D were household names in home markets of Australia and New Zealand. Yet the executive team had a desire to take these great products beyond these shores and to expand the company’s horizons to offshore markets. These leaders were looking to the HR team to partner with them on this journey to build the growth capability of the organization. We embarked on a journey which we called GROW & THINK BEYOND and since then the company has continued to deliver record profits (9.6% increase in NPAT in 2017 to $143M) AND to develop further growth opportunities in the United Kingdom and Asia. In this session you will learn more about the GROW & THINK BEYOND journey including:
  • The role of HR in turbo-charging the growth agenda
  • Succession planning for the growth imperative
  • The reframe that is needed to deliver a growth culture
  • The adaptive shifts required on the GROW & THINK BEYOND journey
  • The new thinking on leadership, talent and capability required to deliver growth
