When starting HEINEKEN SA, we decided that creating ONE company culture would be crucial for our success. We engaged with Catalyst to support us in this journey.

Heineken SA

Catalyst was a great partner in co-creating the Heineken SA culture and leadership journey.
When we separated from Brandhouse we needed to from an identity and “heinekenize” our newly formed organization. Catalyst had great tools and processes to empower our leadership teams to own this process. They assisted us in forming a leadership teams to won this process. They assisted us in forming a leadership forum and rolling out Heineken behaviours and values across the entire organization. They were highly flexible and even empowered our HRBPs with Change Management capability. I would highly recommend Catalyst a partner for any business.

This included a number of large scale projects including a HC Strategy & transformation road map, the re-organisation and capacity building of the full HC team, bespoke performance and competency standards and a capability, toolkit and change management approach which has enhanced executive, leadership and staff buy in engagement. Catalyst have been an absolute pleasure to work with. Professional, knowledgeable and dynamic, they have been true partners on our HC transformation journey. Debbie and her team have a special ability to turn any request, no matter how complex, into an achievable plan. Successfully implementing those plans and witnessing their positive impact has been incredibly rewarding.

Catalyst assisted tremendously be co-creating the “Personal & Leadership Effectiveness Journey”, a graded learning journey, bite sized chunks, coaching, culminating in the deep and powerful “Alive” workshop. The professionalism, expertise, care and investment of the facilitators was extraordinary and results are still felt  add to the business.

Imperial Group

The Imperial Group partnered with Catalyst over 2 years to establish a Group Wide practice of Talent Management. Catalyst not only embedded themselves within our culture and as such assisted us in refining our talent management practice to better suit the business needs, but also ensured the transfer of skills to our HC representative so that they could deliver a service independent of Catalyst. The project was so successful that they could delver a service independent of Catalyst. The project was so successful that what was originally envisioned for a maximum of 100 senior leaders in the levels of the organisation identifying close to 600 HIPO future leaders in Group. Catalyst have proven that they truly are the right collaborators to build sustainable talent management!

We contracted Catalyst for 2 years to execute the Good To Great Strategic Transformation Journey which included Leadership Development, Talent Management, Strategic Planning & execution and additional skills such as Coaching, Innovation, Decision Making and Self-leadership. We touched the lives of over 300 associates across SA, SE Asia and China.

They go the extra mile…the process was adopted across all our global operation with great success.
