What our customers say

We wanted to develop people leadership and business skills of YIT leaders to better meet current and future needs. We felt that Hanken & SSE had true interest in our business and challenges and had a proactive and solution oriented approach. We particularly appreciated the active support and professional discussions in designing the program to truly meet our needs. Also the good reputation as a business school and executive education provider effected our decision. What contributed to the success was to have a reliable and high quality partner to work together with. Being able to trust that the program meets our needs and wishes was vital.

We had previously worked with Hanken & SSE on a successful management team program, so when a new need was identified, we chose to work with Hanken & SSE again. A program covering all the identified development needs was run in 4 different locations of the CIS zone. On top of live learning, we agreed on running interactive activities to support the learning process. All participants were positive and happy about the learnings of the program, they are using the obtained skills in their everyday work. Partnering with Hanken & SSE helped Lactalis to meet the set expectations and to make CIS Management teams more efficient in their everyday work and in achieving business targets in front of them.

We needed to change our leadership style towards a more participatory one, a more people-centric and future- oriented way of viewing the business. It was a clear decision that Hanken & SSE would be our partner. Their development programs are of high quality and this was the most essential criteria for us. Hanken & SSE offers new knowledge based on research and top subject matter experts in their field that challenge to both new ways of thinking and new methods. Each team member gained a lot of new knowledge and from a company perspective, we achieved a joint view of the comany’s position, strengths and direction.The leadership practices and the sales culture were unified and we had a lot of great conversations that have since been transferred into practice.

Together with Hanken & SSE we co-designed and executed a three-step development process, a needs analysis, a high-potential assessment process of 40 future leader successors and a 6-day tailored development program for about 25 selected successor potentials, with the aim to increase knowledge and skills in executing Skanska’s strategy, leading oneself and others, and business thinking in the Skanska context. The high-quality future oriented management programme set the expectation for the participants, which the programme as a whole reclaimed.

We chose Hanken & SSE to draft a completely digital marketing programme for all our team members globally. 80 employees explored the fundamentals and current trends in marketing, while applying the lessons to their real-life business cases along the way. The program has not only ignited lively discussions around marketing but also given tools for new marketing approaches and projects. It was pivotal to have an understanding and encouraging partner like Hanken & SSE to generate this marketing mindset program.

We invest in competence development all the time, and this time we wanted our top executive team to sharpen their competence in the most relevant business topics of the future. Hanken & SSE captured our need and was able to propose a process to exactly meet our targets. We created a learning process that combined the field specific expertise provided by Hanken & SSE and our company’s strategic targets in a compact manner. We have been delighted by the excellent level of the process and resources. The project has enhanced both our internal dialogue and inspiration how to reach the peak and has supported the execution of our strategy.
