Developing Tomorrow’s Leaders through Leadership Academy
Our employees underpin our success. They drive innovation, growth and collectively make McCormick a great place to work. Our commitment to educating and developing our employees continued its evolution in 2022 with the launch of McCormick University, our new platform to provide learning for all, and Leadership Academy, providing skills for now to build for the future.
We are striving to become an industry-leading global learning organization for the development of employees and future leaders, and in 2022, saw a significant increase in the number of connected employees with active development goals. Our focus on diversity, equity and inclusion, coupled with our new education and development tools enables us to deliver unbiased training opportunities to ensure an inclusive leadership culture to attract and retain top talent. Our Global Head of Talent Acquisition, Nikole Freeman, is already seeing the benefits of Leadership Academy for her team.
“The new tools have really magnified what we’re able to offer to our employees,” says Nikole. “I have different needs of my leaders and they are at different phases of their careers. What I love about Leadership Academy is that it meets them where they are.”
