Thomson Reuters is a major multinational mass media and information firm founded in Toronto, Canada. Impact and Thomson Reuters created a world-class development experience that would develop their high-potential future leaders and drive innovation, collaboration and globalisation within their business.

Generate has three overarching business objectives:

  • Develop future leaders
  • Retain top talent
  • Build global capability

Generate is an 11-week blended learning experience split over four phases. The global participants must work effectively together to deliver a strategic business project to a Community Client in India.

Post-programme participant feedback showed:

75% of Generate participants have received a promotion, 23% have been promoted twice.

95% of Generate participants still work with Thomson Reuters.

93% learned and tried new behaviours/actions that will make them a better leader.

96% were equipped with practical skills they can apply back on the job.
