The 1 January 2021 marks a new chapter to the journey of Hanken & SSE Executive Education as HRM Partners joins our family. Ongoing activities will continue as before but now with an even stronger foundation to support our customers in developing strategic capabilities and advancing leaders to the next level by combining academic insight and practice. Our high-quality and large variety of services and international programmes which connect the latest and most relevant knowledge around the globe in leadership, strategic renewal and professional growth will continue in Finnish, English, and Swedish language as before.
The international network of Hanken and Stockholm School of Economics (SSE) enables us to inspire our customers with the latest research and methods for sustainable growth and renewal both on an organisational and individual level. What is new is that the new addition will complement and strengthen our capabilities and the offering with leading HR experts and business coaches.
We aim to be the best partner to support our customers in defining strategic capabilities, to perform actionable change and development programmes and to ensure their impact and implementation by supporting leaders in the global and unpredictable business environment. Our leading career coaching and HRM Partners outplacement solutions ensure a responsible and good employer image and personal career path development sustainably throughout their lifecycle.
“The vision of Hanken & SSE has always been based on creating real business value with a unique approach tailored to our customers’ needs. I truly believe that we now are better placed to support our customers in their renewal processes and leaders in their quests for impact. We envision that what sets us apart is the way we do things, from current state analysis to a close collaboration with inspirational ideas, practical methods, and personal support”, says Marc Hinnenberg, CEO of Hanken & SSE Executive Education.
The current CEO of HRM Partners, Paula Kilpinen, will pursue new opportunities outside of the company. “We want to thank Paula for the excellent results as well as for her professional and inspiring leadership, that has motivated the team to exceed themselves.
