Prioritizing Skills to Drive Talent Agility at H.B. Fuller

“How can you build things that are as small as they can be so that you can plug and play and you can pivot and change? The way that I think about manifesting that in talent programs is thinking about more of a skills culture. If we have the skill of adapting and coping, for example, and we know that’s a critical element in a lot of areas of our organization. Let’s go ahead and build programs around building that skill up, then we can quickly pivot and change as the organization’s needs change.”

Becky Layana, Global Talent Program Manager, H.B. Fuller
