Featuring Leslie Joyce, senior vice president and chief people officer, on creating a comprehensive talent management system from scratch.
One of the first decisions Novelis' new CEO made when he arrived was to hire Dr. Joyce, and charge her to create an entirely new talent management system. She answered that charge with assessment and development. Her journey included a global talent review, assessment, and support to take local leaders and make them in to global ones. "We can now say, 'we really want world-class [talent], and that's all we're ever going to settle for,'" says Dr. Joyce of the talent transformation at Novelis.
