“As a private equity-owned firm, we need a partnership and Hult EF really sold us on that. We receive so much support for our learning and development program that I feel like they are part of our team internally! I don’t have another vendor that I work with the same way.”
Diversey, Inc. is a provider of smart sustainable solutions for cleaning and hygiene products. Headquartered in North Carolina, USA, Diversey works internationally, with 9,000 employees worldwide.
Today, a stand-alone company, the organization has been through many phases of transformation in recent years as they have moved through various forms of ownership. The latest acquisition was made in 2017 when Bain Capital Private Equity purchased the Diversey Care division to be managed as a stand-alone company.
We had the opportunity to interview Melissa Narron, Human Resources Project Manager, and Deanne Kissinger, Head of Talent at Diversey, to find out how they managed a learning and development initiative, corporate language training, through the transition.
