12 “People join companies, but they leave managers” Conventional Wisdom
“Commitment is not to an organization, it is to the leader’s vision and to the culture that follows on that vision” Jac Fitz-Enz

13 Unique Value Drivers of Engagement @ Teva Neuroscience
Commitment to Talent Management Pay It Forward Philosophy and Practices Positive Culture and Work Environment

14 TN Unique Value Driver #1
Commitment to Talent Management Leadership Brand development (2004) Key roles identification/mapping processes (since 2004) Emerging Leader identification, assessment and development planning processes (since 2005) Individual Development Plans in place for all employees (since 2009) Leveraging processes/tools across NABP in 2011

15 Commitment to Talent Management
2004 Leadership Brand Identified five leadership competencies needed over 5 to 10 year planning horizon: Achieving Business Results, Visioning/Strategic Thinking, Talent Management, Credibility, and Leading and Managing Change; assessed all top leaders against brand and created individual development plans 2007 TN Reorganization Leveraged assessment/development data to make informed and strategic people decisions at leadership levels All individuals successful in their respective roles; now using same process to identify potential successors

16 Commitment to Talent Management
NABP Commitments (late 2010) Leveraged best practices from individual units to create alignment and consistent practices ID key talent, critical positions and career mapping Assess via common set of criteria; create individual development plans Develop core leadership curriculum Create NABP level “slate of talent” Conduct formal reviews of top talent at least once a year by unit and once a year across NABP To date, dozens and dozens of individuals have taken promotional or developmental assignments across the brands since late 2009

17 TN Unique Value Driver #2
“Pay It Forward” Philosophy and Practices Create a positive impact on local organizations/individuals Grow Teva’s community reputation and image Enhance our ability to attract talent and to be viewed as an “employer of choice” Increase opportunities for business networking and partnerships; a voice in the area’s economic development Strengthen employee engagement/retention …and it all started by asking “what if”

18 TN “pays it forward” for the 1st time…(12/05)
Our company about to achieve major product milestone and we were looking for a way to celebrate it Many ideas offered (special bonuses, gifts, etc.) Each TN associate received $100 AMEX gift card… with two strings attached: It was to be used to benefit someone else (“not in your family…perhaps someone you don’t even know”) … or even a random act of kindness They had to tell us their stories…we set up special box to capture how the money was used to help others (hundreds of stories were shared)

19 (Photo Removed) The Starfish Story Adapted from The Star Thrower
by Loren Eiseley ( ) Once upon a time, there was a wise man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach before he began his work. One day, as he was walking along the shore, he looked down the beach and saw a human figure moving like a dancer. He smiled to himself at the thought of someone who would dance to the day, and so, he walked faster to catch up. As he got closer, he noticed that the figure was that of a young man, and that what he was doing was not dancing at all. The young man was reaching down to the shore, picking up small objects, and throwing them into the ocean. He came closer still and called out "Good morning! May I ask what it is that you are doing?" The young man paused, looked up, and replied "Throwing starfish into the ocean." "I must ask, then, why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?" asked the somewhat startled wise man. To this, the young man replied, "The sun is up and the tide is going out. If I don't throw them in, they'll die." Upon hearing this, the wise man commented, "But, young man, do you not realize that there are miles and miles of beach and there are starfish all along every mile? You can't possibly make a difference!" At this, the young man bent down, picked up yet another starfish, and threw it into the ocean. As it met the water, he said, “It made a difference for that one.” (Photo Removed)

20 "All of us are born for a reason, but all of us don't discover why
"All of us are born for a reason, but all of us don't discover why. Success in life has nothing to do with what you gain in life or accomplish for yourself. It's what you do for others." Danny Thomas

21 "Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each one of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation. " Robert F. Kennedy
