Olam’s strong people management capabilities have helped fuel our growth over the past 27 years. From the very beginning, investing in and developing talent and leadership has been one of our top priorities and that process is deeply embedded in our corporate culture. It is a testimony to this capability that in 2010 Olam was ranked among the Top 20 Global Companies for Leaders by Fortune Magazine and Hewitt Consultants.
We place a strong emphasis on developing a deep bench-strength of managers and we understand that success stems from the ability of our people to execute our multiple growth initiatives. This is accomplished by ensuring that each time a new business is started, a new geography is opened, or a new value chain initiative is developed, we are able to deploy a core team of leaders and managers who have the capabilities to spearhead the opportunity.
