Scaling Efficiency and Growth
L’Oréal is the biggest personal care brand in the world. The company has earned over $25 billion worldwide and continues to grow rapidly. Reaching such a massive scale presents its own challenges: maintaining vision, team efficiency, and customer satisfaction along with growth.
Kellie Glenister manages a team of 120 sales reps for L’Oréal. Her job is to keep the company motto, “One team, one dream,” alive and well. Staying connected at every level gives L’Oréal the momentum it needs to dominate the market.
That momentum starts with the sales team. Keeping field operations connected to the rest of the company is essential. They are the direct link between the customer and the company and the first ones to see demand in the market.
Increased communication is the backbone of a good business strategy. Every level of operations, from sales representatives to executives, benefits from a greater understanding of operations. L’Oréal’s tremendous growth proves the results operations can bring.
Communication & Strategy
Working in field sales has a ton of perks. You get to travel to new places, meet new people, and dine in different restaurants. Outside of closing deals, some sales reps like the lifestyle so much, they compare it to vacationing while on the job. Now I’m jealous. But regardless if you feel like your career is a continual retreat or not, life on the road can start to catch up with you if you are not proactive. Here at Badger Maps we understand the traveling sales person’s lifestyle and we want to give you some tips about staying healthy on the road as a busy sales rep.
