Syngenta is a global business operating in a competitive market. It relies heavily on its scientists to research and develop new products. These products enable countries throughout the world to grow sufficient food to feed the ever-increasing world population.

With over 24,000 staff working in 90 countries, Syngenta must organise its resources and use the talents of its people effectively. It uses a matrix management structure, as this is best suited to bringing together people with diverse skills into project teams. This works better than having a tall hierarchical structure with many layers. Team leaders in charge of project teams are trained and supported to help their teams perform to the highest standards.

Syngenta has a commitment to recruiting people with skills and abilities which the business can develop long-term. This benefits employees by providing more challenging role opportunities and it benefits the company by ensuring it has the right talent resources in place for future growth.
