Building a Unified Global Business Through Learning Innovation at Brambles
Brambles Holdings is an Australian listed holding company with operations in more than 60 countries.
The organisation has over 14,000 employees and a turnover of US $5.5bn. The group’s global business is in pallets, plastic reusable crates and containers – with only 500 million pieces of equipment around the world!
A change of CEO 6.5 years ago (Tom Gorman) stimulated a culture switch to an operating organisation which had huge implications on previously semi-independent businesses. What happened next was:
- A new company mantra: “One business – One team”
- A drive for synergies and for the Group’s companies to speak to customers and suppliers with a common voice
- Changes included divestment from one business and acquisition of a better fit business in Germany
- L&D was very disparate and devolved
- Significant waste was occurring through duplication of provision and little local uptake of centrally procured systems and interventions
- A ‘not invented here’ mentality which had resulted in national companies creating local solutions to common group needs – and rejecting offerings from other group companies
- Employee engagement survey showed growth and development to be lowest factor consistently over 8 years

Industry thought-leaders speaking at the Learning Technologies Conference joined our LT Exchanges to tackle some of today’s big questions around technology. What, how and where can it be applied?
Micro learning is one of the hot new trends this year, but as with any new learning technology, it comes with its challenges for implementation.
Consider the 3 ‘P’s – Purpose, Principles and Personas and put users at the heart of your learning content design strategy.
One of the biggest shifts in learning technology is in the development of increasingly collaborative platforms. So how do we best harness these solutions and create a culture of knowledge sharing?
Day 1 of Learning Technologies and Fabrizio Conrado reports on the key challenges and opportunities that surfaced during the exchange with David Kelly.
