Imperial Brands plc is a multinational consumer-goods company headquartered in Bristol, United Kingdom. A FTSE 100 company with annual revenues of over £25.2 billion (2015), its products are sold in over 160 countries.
The company embarked on a strategic overhaul and transformation of its global finance workforce. A key component of the change encompassed building stronger commercial and partnering skills across the finance function. The company sought a new solution that would be easily accessible and consistent around the globe.
Accenture Academy worked with Imperial Brands’ learning leaders to define specific curriculum paths, and the solution was configured to reflect branding, learning path and user-experience requirements.
The company has achieved its goals of providing more relevant and agile online learning, and this important benefit has become part of the company culture. Rather than waiting for face-to-face training opportunities, employees can now learn at any time, thereby enabling them to remain relevant in their roles.
