• 3M listed as a Best Company for Leaders by Chief Executive Magazine

        • Global science company, 3M, who supports brands such a Post-it and Scotch, have been named as a Best Company for leaders by U.S. magazine Chief Executive.

          The accolade ranks 3M eighth in the magazine’s list, three spots higher than in 2015, and focuses on the CEO’s commitment to leadership development, how often management positions are filled internally, and the the number of business that loo to recruit form outside the company.

          Marlene McGrath, 3M Senior VP of HR said, “Under CEO Inge Thulin, we are strengthening our talent pipeline and focusing on the development of leaders around the globe. 3M’s growth and business success depends on our people, the competitive advantage they provide and the investment we are making to support them.”

          3Ms success story comes in the form of its CTO and Senior VP of R&D, Ashish Khandpur. His leadership potential was spotted early on in his career as he travelled the world leading about the company and its customers following a role as Senior Research Engineer.

          Showing the leadership development program is one to be proud of Ashish says, “leadership is about empowering people to accomplish the task at hand. I want to harness the collective strength of our people and all accessible resources to engage them.”
