High Potential Program
What is a HiPo?
“High potentials consistently and significantly outperform their peer groups in a variety of settings and circumstances. While achieving these superior levels of performance, they exhibit behaviors that reflect their companies’ culture and values in an exemplary manner. Moreover, they show a strong capacity to grow and succeed throughout their careers within an organization—more quickly and effectively than their peer groups do.”
–Harvard Business Review
A HiPo is found at the intersection of three key markers: aspiration, ability, engagement.
To rise to more challenging and senior roles
To be successful in more challenging and senior roles
To commit to the organization and remain in challenging and senior roles
