Top experts in world-class circular economy activities deserve the best leadership. This was the starting point when Pirkanmaan Jätehuolto (Tampere Solid Waste Management) contacted Gofore. Its leadership culture has been completely transformed in six months.
“We have grown from a traditional waste management company into a world-class circular economy expert with a net positive carbon footprint. We want to be forerunners in all respects, which is why we also aimed to develop our leadership culture.” says Pirkanmaan Jätehuolto’s CEO Harri Kallio.
The leadership culture development has been addressed one item at a time, regarding both mindset and practices.
“During the last six months, we have carried out a comprehensive reorganisation, meaning for example, that the former management group work has been replaced by what we call ‘daily and direction groups’, and development discussions have been changed to ‘My direction’ discussions, focusing on people’s strengths and potential.” says Pia Räihä, Head of HR.
The organisation chart has also been changed to reflect the current leadership culture, remote working practices have been redefined, and combining work and private life has been made easier.
How can all this happen in just six months?
