How great companies develop their staff – PepsiCo

PepsiCo is following a similar approach to GE with CEO Roger Enrico spending more than 100 days a year personally conducting leadership workshops for senior executives. According to PepsiCo’s program the most important philosophy of a leader is to personally develop other leaders. As a result, 86% of executive vacancies are filled from within. In the training session, values for leadership are discussed, along with techniques and philosophy, as well as new business opportunities are explored which then are worked out by the participants and discussed in a next session.

Alongside the personal involvement of CEO and senior executives, PepsiCo’s designs their bonus packages with up to 50% of the goals relating the values and leadership behavior – counterbalancing the tendency to focus only on results and neglecting the way to get there.
