  • My name is Temitope Adedayo-Ojo and I am the HR Business Partner for HPZ/TEC which is the Electrical arm of PZ Cussons Nigeria. I joined PZ Cussons Nigeria in July 2006 as a Graduate Trainee. Had an intensive six-month classroom training which was an abridged MBA curriculum with regular attachments to the various SBUs. This gave an all-round experience to various functions such as marketing, sales, finance, HR, supply chain, etc. Afterwards, I was assigned to Central Human Resources as a Training Analyst. Spent two years on that role and was later moved to HPZ as a Learning & Development Manager in 2008.


In 2011, I was appointed the HR Business Partner for HPZ. I have had the opportunity to work with the PZ Cussons UK team on a secondment. Learnings were very impactful, with the team friendly and supportive.


Some of the key achievements while in PZ Cussons include:


1.Key facilitator in the nationwide launch/roll out of our CANDO values to all employees in PZ Cussons across the Country.  Had the responsibility for planning, budgeting, facilitating and ensuring the new values were well cascaded and embedded across the business.


2.Survey Champion for the first Employee Satisfaction Survey in PZ Cussons Nigeria. Target point was exceeded and got a certificate of achievement from the Global CEO.


3.Played a vital role in the merging of two SBUs HPZ and TEC in 2010. Ensured smooth people transitions without disruptions to the business.


4.Fundamental support in the change and implementation of the new sales structure in TEC.


I have had an interesting career experience with PZ Cussons so far. I have learnt a lot in the last nine years with PZ Cussons. It’s a merit driven organisation where employees are free to express themselves. We are one big ‘CANDO’ family and it’s a great place to work!
