Eversource Energy, a Fortune 500 company, powers New England by providing electricity, natural gas service and water service to approximately 4 million customers in Connecticut, Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Eversource Energy’s HR department had an objective to prepare up-and-coming supervisors with the skills required to lead.
How They're Succeeding Now
Each year, another batch of new leaders has been enrolled in the Advanced Management Certificate, and the program is expanding. Recently the offering has been rolled out to the engineering team, and certain high performers from other departments.
“We have some employees not on the leadership track who have proactively opted into a Carnegie Cloud subscription. Word gets around that the training is valuable, and we see this as a very positive sign of engagement in our workforce.”
- Sean Manning, Sr. Consultant, Leadership Development
“We were looking for an online solution to give professional development skills to employees in a way that they could get excited about, and customizable so they could take ownership of their own learning path. And because it was virtual, it needed to be highly engaging to win over employees on the fence about training online. The quality of the training is second to none, I have yet to experience an online web training even close to this, where everyone actively participates together.”
