Synovus Senior Leader Development Program Wins 2022 Human Capital Management Excellence Award

Columbus, Ga., September 19, 2022 – Synovus Bank has been named a 2022 Human Capital Management (HCM) Excellence Awards winner for the design, implementation, and execution of its virtual senior leader development program, Catalyst on Demand. In partnership with TrainingPros, Synovus won a bronze award in the leadership development category.

“At Synovus, we’re proud to enable our more than 5,000 team members to inspire, learn, and grow through purposeful careers and professional development opportunities,” said Sharon Goodwine, Synovus chief human resources officer. “This award is a testament to Synovus’ commitment to a strong corporate culture that furthers collaboration and career growth.”

Together, Synovus and TrainingPros developed and launched Catalyst on Demand earlier this year. The virtual senior leader development program focuses on business strategy and executive leadership readiness. Through Catalyst on Demand, Synovus senior leaders engage in thoughtful conversation and master nine transformational leadership capabilities in monthly workshops led by a rotating group of internal scholars. The program also includes competency assessments, curated content, and a certification program.

The HCM Excellence Awards program is managed by Brandon Hall Group, an independent human capital management research and analyst firm. The HCM Excellence Awards recognize exemplary work in learning and development, talent management, leadership development, talent acquisition, human resources, sales performance, and diversity, equity and inclusion. The 2022 HCM Excellence Award winners, including Synovus, will be honored by Brandon Hall Group during the organization’s HCM Excellence Conference in early 2023.
