2:15 PM CASE STUDY: How is JTI Building a GBS organisation during the global pandemic

JTI has a unique story to share: As the global pandemic hit, they were at the planning stage of their GBS organisation across three continents. They didn’t slow down and since then had a very interesting journey of hiring, onboarding, transitioning and eventually building their GBS organisation, every step done remotely. Join this session to hear some of the key lessons learned:

·        Overcoming unexpected challenges: Ramping up a GBS organisation across 3 global locations through a global pandemic

·        Creative ways of building brands, hiring and onboarding remotely

·        Instilling a OneGBS culture across the global workforce that have never met each other
