Global and Local Leadership Programs
Geared towards a strategy of sustainable growth, the programs offered by the Sika Business School comprise leadership and talent development, sales training, digital learning, and special academies. More than 100 courses were offered in 2019 and attended by 1,700 participants. The 15 training programs conducted for existing and upcoming managers were designed to further foster management and leadership knowhow and, among other objectives, prepare them for assignments abroad. For continuing education of its over 200 Senior Managers, Sika partnered with the London Business School to deliver a three-day program on strategy and leadership called “Building Together For Our Future.”
