The Challenge

As it prepared to undertake a significant transformation of its global operating model, Kraft Heinz wanted to do more to prepare managers for the challenges that lay ahead.

Kraft Heinz Program

Kraft Heinz wanted virtual coaching to accelerate the development of leaders from various levels of the company, across different functions and located in more than a dozen countries.

"As we stepped into our new business transformation, we knew that we wanted to invest in our people."

Stacey Johnson, Head of Leadership and Culture, Kraft Heinz

Kraft Heinz was familiar with Ezra and what we brought to the table. That allowed for a quick assessment of the needs of high-potential leaders and the design of a tailored coaching program that featured the new corporate culture and values that were being introduced by a new CEO.

Ezra also became the perfect solution to help Kraft Heinz when the pandemic struck. The virtual nature of the coaching, and the flexibility of scheduling, allowed leaders in different countries and time zones, some with 24-hour-a-day production responsibilities, to connect with their coaches in the most convenient way possible.
