Programme comprising online webinars, classroom workshops (when possible), the Lumina Leader 360, books and podcasts. New to development at Yusen is the addition of a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) element. In partnership with the Novus Trust and Middlesex University, Yusen are providing three, free places on the programme for senior leaders, and will also support students currently completing Logistics degrees. Participants on the programme will provide online briefings to students from across seven universities, Q&A sessions, one to one mentoring and research support.
“The new programme is the natural partner to our existing Management Development Programme, which we’ve run for many years. We’re excited about the addition of the CSR element which brings together a leading logistics charity plus academic specialists to learn alongside our own leaders. Supporting and inspiring the next generation of supply chain professionals as part of the programme will be a great outcome for everyone,” said Liz Veasey, Regional Head of Talent and Development, Europe.
The NOVUS Trust works with leading universities to provide students studying business, logistics and supply chain degrees with guest lectures, mentoring and career coaching, placements for the summer and a third year, year-long industrial placement, in addition to guaranteed graduate employment.
NOVUS recognises the need to reinvent the way in which the supply chain profession finds and prepares its future leaders. The Yusen Leadership Development Programme provides an opportunity for those working in the vital field of supply chain management to inspire the next generation of logisticians and support students in developing skills that will prepare them for a rewarding career in logistics!
“NOVUS believes that, by providing applied, sector-relevant education, we can recruit and retain superlative graduates for our sector. Our partnership with Yusen, and the commitment from those on the Leadership Development Programme to deliver talks, panels and mentoring, provides an exciting and tangible insight into the profession that is sure to inspire future logistics leaders,” added Bethany Windsor, Operations Manager NOVUS,
