One of the first aspects of Stos Enso's organizational culture that was transmitted to the trainees was the importance of innovation. Around 70% of all major Stora Enso's innovations have their roots at our customers. But although we constantly hear about innovation success stories we forget about sharing/asking for one of the most important aspects of success: FAILURE. Failure and innovation are more related to each other than we think; the more we fail, the more we learn, the closer we are to our goal.
Something very interesting about the trainee group GROW 2016, is the multiculturality.
Was it the fact that we learned directly from the heads of divisions about the company’s strategy? Or attending the leadership modules at IMD business school? Or even the fact that we have worked in strategical tasks around the company’s transformation? Those were my thoughts when I was asked that question by Tiina Tammenpaä in Kanavaranta for a video interview that will promote the GROW global trainee programme 2017.
