Case Study for Upskilling:

  • Unilever commits to upskilling and reskilling by 2025. “We will ensure that all our employees have a future-fit skillset, by 2025, to help them further their careers, whether that’s within or outside Unilever. We will also pioneer new employment models by 2030 that allow people to choose how they want to work. These could include flexible contracts that retain full-time benefits, or time off to study or retrain.” Read more about Unilever’s DEI Goals
