Hear from Angela Mangiapane, President of Mars Global Services (MGS), about the ways Mars is approaching its multiyear transformation of its shared services function. By using a Purpose-driven approach to value creation beyond looking solely at economics, MGS has made great strides – but it’s by focusing on the people factor, and committing to “unlearning to relearn” that has truly redefined the role of the function within the business. Angela will share her philosophy about how this approach has impacted productivity, efficiency and is transforming the role of Mars’ shared services function from “back office” to “backbone” of the global food, confectionery and pet care organization.
