Region: Greater China
Project timeline: 2018 – Now
Ever since 2007 when Lundbeck entered China, they have been rapidly expanding in both business development and employee size. In 2019, Lundbeck’s employees in China has increased by 24.5% compared to 2018. The number of managing level also increased by 50%. However, the company faced challenges of maintaining talent retention and strengthening workforce capabilities, including:
The solution for Lundbeck to identify the workforce capability gap and ensure employees to increase their agility and be able to adapt to the fast-paced business environment is to implement training programs, targeting managing and junior levels of the entire sales team, respectively.
Traditionally, the trainers and trainees have different perspectives and communications procedures as they are usually from different departments. What makes this project much more innovated is to effectively combine the Advanced Training Program with the Internal Trainer Program, as well as fully focus on the trainings and development of each employee (RSM/DSM/MR).
is a three-year program, targeting sales managing level, that focuses on three areas, Professional Counselling, Business Development, and Advanced Execution.
is a five-year program, targeting sales junior level, that includes 5 types of trainings, Presentation Skills, In-House Trainer and Guidance, Partner Coaching Skills, Best Experience Application, and Performance and Project Management.
The improvement of the leadership and professional competence of the team plays an essential role of better supporting Lundbeck’s rapid development. With the full supports from Lundbeck’s higher-management level, the Advanced Training Program and Internal Trainer Program have been running effectively, leading to exceptional results for winning the 2020 Corporate University Best Practice Award.
