I was in Norway last week with Statoil Hydro, the global energy company. Our firm, The RBL Group, has been privileged to assist Jens Jenssen and his human resources team in the transformation of HR… At a meeting of the HR leadership team, we talked about the company’s global growth ambitions and the importance of accelerating the development of their future leaders.
