The Boss’s Debut

Acknowledging the challenges faced by first-time managers, Godrej Consumer Products Ltd provides a range of customized training interventions to help new managers in developing people management skills.

Ensuring a smooth transition of employees from individual contributors to people managers is of critical importance. At the same time, this transition is generally not an easy one for the new manager as well as the team. Hence, GCPL aims at making this transition a successful one through learning interventions and reinforcement of the skills needed to become a great people manager and keep the organization’s culture and employee experience intact.

Our research study on Mid – Size (organisations with 100-500 employees) workplace cultures reveals that receiving management support while taking up leadership positions has been identified as a Key Driver of employee engagement. Getting the best out of people by creating a favourable context for learning eventually leads to building greater capabilities among them and equips them as they step into new leadership roles.
