The 12 participants in the Talent Development Programme recently gathered in person in Höganäs, Sweden, where they were able to meet CEO Henrik Ager and representatives of Höganäs’ ownership group.

“By offering this programme, we want to make Höganäs an even more attractive place to work, and it is one of our activities for attracting, retaining and developing talent,” says Therése Jönmark, SVP HR and Communication, who initiated the programme.

The programme will last for one year and aims to give participants an enhanced understanding of Höganäs’ global business, strategic direction, customer centricity and leadership capabilities.

“We also use several tools for self-assessments. The participants will be assigned a mentor, receive individual coaching, work with a challenge from the General Management team and conduct study visits to various organisations,” says Lovisa Bergendal Lindstedt, VP Leadership and Competence Development, who is responsible for the Talent Development Programme.

"I am grateful for the opportunity to join the programme. I have learned a lot, and we are already a good team with a good mixture of people," says Jana Lellau, Director of Business Control in Germany, and one of the programme’s participants.

"I feel excited, and I am looking forward to this journey. I especially appreciate the mentoring and training sessions and I will try to grow further during the programme," says Rahul Lokmanwar, Market Development Manager in India.
