This week, Pluma announced its partnership with Sephora to provide executive coaching to approximately 100 of its U.S. field employees. These include regional directors, district managers and store directors.
The engagement resulted from a foresighted observation from Gregg Ardizone, Senior Vice President of Stores for Sephora. He noted very early on in the COVID-19 pandemic that Sephora had an opportunity to demonstrate support for its team members by providing digital coaching to its retail leadership.
Jason Tam, a Pluma coaching participant and Sephora’s regional director for the Northeast commented, “My main goal for the program was to continue to refine my leadership skills in director report feedback, accountability and managing conflict. In partnership with my Pluma coach, we’ve built a plan customized to my desired outcomes, which includes ongoing exercises and feedback that provides insights into my areas of strengths and opportunities.”
We are so excited to partner with Sephora, the global leading prestige beauty retailer. Sephora leaders manage more than 490 stores across the Americas and the organization is hugely prioritizing employee support and development. The Pluma team has designed a unique curriculum to support Sephora’s retail leadership that includes ensuring teams remain focused, productive and motivated, keeping up team morale remotely, delegating and reprioritizing efforts while stores are closed, balancing life realities with remote work and looking towards requirements for future reopenings.
