About Colgate-Palmolive

Colgate-Palmolive is a leading global consumer products company with 34,000 people dedicated to improving the health and wellness of people and their pets. Focused on Oral Care, Personal Care, Home Care and Pet Nutrition and reaching more than 200 countries and territories, Colgate teams are developing, producing, distributing and selling health and hygiene products and pet nutrition offerings essential to society through a wide range of brands.

The challenge

Colgate-Palmolive has a strategic objective to build data and analytics capability within the HR function, harnessing the power of data and people analytics to drive a new mindset and culture across the function internationally.

The solution

To help Colgate-Palmolive achieve this we developed and deployed two solutions:

  • Data Foundations
  • Data Champions Certificate

Data Foundations

Colgate-Palmolive was also looking to rapidly upskill a larger population on the fundamentals of data literacy. Data Foundations is a lite version of training consisting of bite-sized online content and pop-up learning. This was better suited to provide an understanding of how working with data can positively impact business outcomes.

Data Champions Certificate

This programme is designed to give HR leaders and managers the knowledge and confidence to implement a new way of working with data within their roles. Data Champions Certificate is a 9-week programme combining on-demand learning, live classes, and group project work.
