Menigo Foodservice is one of Sweden’s largest food suppliers – with more than 100 leaders. In terms of leadership development, Menigo has decided to invest in leadership training for all of its leaders – on all levels of the organization. 
Every leader in the company has taken on a simple, but critical, task: to practice leadership each day in order to reach company goals.
The mission
  • A clear goal of strengthening leadership and employee engagement in the organization
  • 110 leaders to participate in a 6-month training program on the job
  • Two company-wide KPIs to measure results: engagement and leadership index
The Yomento way of training

Menigo chose to partner with us at Yomento to support the development of their leaders. The Yomento platform is developed to inspire and support leaders to practice leadership behaviors every day, and thereby empower teams and organizations to reach its goals.

“Everything starts with leadership – which is why we believe in giving all leaders the opportunity to practice in their daily lives, creating habits which will help them succeed in the future,” says Yomento CEO Henrik Ståhle.

To succeed however, training must be put into a relevant context – simply signing up for an app is not enough. A few success criteria’s was established together with Menigo:

  • Clear, time-bound and inspiring goals
  • Effective onboarding of all leaders
  • Real-time data to track progress
  • Monthly follow-ups for accountability, to maintain motivation, and to share insights
Easy access and data-driven leadership development

Menigo kicked off their new leadership initiative during a leadership conference where all leaders participated. Yomento gave a short introduction on the importance of daily leadership and practice, and then guided the leaders to activate and familiarize themselves with the app. In just a few minutes all leaders were onboard and had completed their very first training session!

Menigo can easily access aggregated (not individual) data on training progress throughout the organization; such as leadership themes chosen, training sessions completed, and benchmarks between different functions. Also, each month Menigo’s CEO Jonas Köhler follows up on the initiative, encouraging the leaders to keep training.

“We believe leadership is a skill which needs to be practiced each and every day, and Yomento´s platform helps us to achieve that. Since launch I have received lots of positive feedback from our leaders and I also note that discussions around leadership take place all over the organization.

With daily training, we expect and encourages our leaders to reach new heights,” says Pia Pierre, Learning & Development manager at Menigo.

“Also, by measuring the frequency of practice and observing both our strengths and weaknesses, we can become more proactive in how we support all of our leaders, enabling us to achieve greater results”.

The Results

Six months into the leadership training on-the-job, Menigo measured the impact through their annual employee survey, Sysco Speaks. A total of 4.500 leadership training activities had been completed by the leaders and the results were as follows:

  • An increase in Leadership Index with +4% (total company)
  • An increase in Engagement Index with +2% (total company)
  • A clear positive correlation between leadership training frequency and Leadership Index

“We love to work with forward-thinking companies like Menigo and with people like Pia Pierre. Our data shows that daily leadership behaviors has definitely accelerated, with impressive effects ” says Yomento CEO Henrik Ståhle.

“We really increased the frequency of leadership behaviors in the entire organization. Most importantly though, we were able to see the real impact of this in our annual survey:  our employees states clearly that their leaders have improved for them, and they rate their own engagement scores higher”,  says Pia Pierre
