With origins in Germany, REMONDIS has expanded its operations quickly across the world during the 20th century. Operating in Australia since 1982, REMONDIS has grown and diversified to become one of the country’s largest waste and recycling companies.

In 2022, REMONDIS Australia was looking to launch an Emerging Leaders Program. The company wanted to effectively cultivate leaders to lead the organization towards a sustainable future. With the program, they were looking to accelerate leadership capability of high potential leaders, enhance their leadership effectiveness and ensure they have the necessary leadership skills to support their team and customers into the future. And they decided to partner with Talogy to bring this program to life.

REMONDIS has previously worked with Talogy on candidate assessment and manager coaching across the organization – a partnership that led to deep trust in our expertise and business knowledge.  When REMONDIS were looking to develop a future-ready leadership, they fully trusted Talogy to help make it a success again.

Talogy’s expert consultants worked closely with REMONDIS to create the program content and worked with the participants throughout the 16-month cohort:

Program designed based on best practice and a range of validated leadership frameworks

Services delivered:

  • Leadership profiling, development planning, pre-program coaching feedback
  • Six immersive workshops across six national locations focused on topics such as Leading with Emotional Intelligence, Change Management, Finance for Non-Finance Managers and Leading Strategy
  • Guided reflective practice for participants to ensure strengths could be leveraged and development areas fast tracked

The program was rolled out in three phases:

  • Phase 1: Setting participants up for success
    Initial profiling and planning to prepare participants for development work.
  • Phase 2: Knowledge exchange
    Participants attended targeted workshops to exchange knowledge and expertise in their respective development areas.
  • Phase 3: Knowledge embedding
    Participants received customized development plan driven by analytics and workshop feedback.

By the end of the cohort, all the participants and REMONDIS are provided with development plans.

For participants:

  • Individualized development plan with insight into their strengths and development opportunities, enabling them to improve their leadership skills.


  • A comprehensive science-backed leadership profile report to facilitate future leadership development.
  • Valuable insights into internal leadership capabilities.

The Emerging Leaders Program commenced in February 2022, and was rolled out across Australia.
