Core Values Culture

Embedding Core Values as a International roll-out

Multinational pharmaceutical firm Almirall wanted a solution that would allow them to share their updated core values with employees across six branches across Europe. Employees would need to not only understand these values but also apply them to situations. We developed a workshop structure that allows the company to self-run sessions for up to 40 staff, broken down into smaller teams of five. The workshop took the form of a game, built around the company’s revitalised values. Rather than a competitive game, Almirall was keen for the quiz to spark discussion, to enable them to understand how individuals were adapting to the changes.

Feedback from individuals was incredibly positive. Teams have evidently been comfortable with the familiarity of the board game structure, while still felt challenged and educated by the questions asked and dilemmas posed. This combination of fun and challenge is what makes events such as these so valuable.

Most importantly, it has given Almirall a clear indication of how well their workforce is adapting to the company’s new direction, and what areas might still need addressing. At the end of each two-hour workshop, employees have been debriefed and asked how they feel the session went, and what they felt needed further discussion. This critical feedback has not only helped to evolve the workshop structure, but also the strategic direction of the organisation as a whole.

‘Easy to implement to all levels of the company and easy to use, intuitive, didactic and fun.’

‘A very creative way of generating useful employee insight to move the organisational culture forward.’

Core Values Culture

Implementering af kerneværdier på internationalt plan

Multinationale lægemiddelfirma Almirall ønskede en løsning, der ville give dem mulighed for at dele deres opdaterede kerneværdier med medarbejdere på tværs af seks filialer i hele Europa. Medarbejdere skulle ikke kun forstå disse værdier, men også anvende dem aktivt i hverdagssituationer. Vi udviklede en workshop-struktur, der gav Almirall mulighed for selvdrevne sessioner for op til 40 medarbejdere fordelt på mindre hold. Workshoppen tog form af et spil, bygget op om virksomhedens revitaliserede værdier. I stedet for et konkurrencepræget spil ønskede Almirall en quiz der lagde op til diskussion og dialog bl.a. om hvordan enkeltpersoner tilpasser sig forandringer.

Tilbagemeldingerne fra deltagerne var utroligt positive. Holdene var tydeligvis trygge ved brætspilstrukturen, mens de stadig følte sig udfordrede af de stillede spørgsmål og dilemmaer. Denne kombination af sjov og udfordring er, hvad der gør begivenheder som disse så engagerende.

Det vigtigske var, at det gav Almirall en klar indikation af, hvordan deres arbejdsstyrke ville tilpasse sig virksomhedens nye retning, og hvilke områder der muligvis skulle sætte ind på. I slutningen af ​​hvert to-timers værksted blev medarbejderne debriefet og spurgt, hvordan de følte at sessionen gik, og om  de følte behov for yderligere dialog. Denne aktivt kritiske tilbagemelding bidrog ikke kun til udvikling af workshop-strukturen, men også den strategiske retning for organisationen som helhed.

‘Let at implementere til alle niveauer i virksomheden og let at bruge, intuitivt, didaktisk og sjovt.’

‘En meget kreativ måde at generere nyttig medarbejderindsigt på og flytte en organisatorisk kultur fremad.’

Core Values Diversity

Communicating Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in a fun way

In partnership with events planner, Rockitfish, we devised an employee engagement activity for a Skills Development client, based around EDI (Equality, Diversity and Inclusion). In the game, a disgruntled employee had infiltrated the company’s system and locked down the files. To release them, his former colleagues had to prove that they understood the importance of equality, diversity and inclusion.

Coined the ‘Diversity Challenge’, this classic ‘Escape Room’ style game asked groups to solve puzzles and unravel clues. All tasks, as well as being fun and engaging, were tailored to EDI.

 ‘The group activity was a huge success with the HR team – it definitely fuelled our competitive spirit, and truly brought EDI to life. Well done on providing such an engaging activity’ – Head of HR Professional Services

Objective: Communicate new corporate Values

Abbvie wanted to communicate the corporate values in a really vivid

Since one of the themes of the company meeting was music we
created a customized music industry business game that incorporated the values of Abbvie. Each team was given the role as A&R for a large record label. Their end goal was to “sign” an artist, by successfully
completing a number of missions. The values were really well understood and well supported across the organization.

Powel ønskede at skabe opmærksomhed omkring deres kerneværdier på årsmødet. Men hvordan sikrer man fuldt engagement,  når 300 af 450 ansatte ikke fysisk er til stede?

Ved at køre et digitalt forretningsspil på bærbare computere og tabletter, kunne alle hold (selv dem der var off-site) deltage. Motivationen blev yderligere boostet af resultater og feedback tilgængelige på skærme i realtid.

Get employees dedicated around organizational values and goals

Industry leading eye tracking company Tobii bought its American competitor Dynavox, which created a company with two different cultures. Creating a common set of values was an important part of the integration process of Tobii and Dynavox. 

Presentations from stage were kept to a minimum; instead focus was geared towards group discussions, workshops and business games that triggered engagement, networking and shared insights. Finally, a tailor-made Values Game was used to communicate and achieve buy-in on corporate values and identity.

“We came here as a group of people that thought we were working as a team but we’re leaving here as a family of people working as a team.” – Tony Pavlik, VP of Operations at Tobii Dynavox:

Innovativt temaoplæg om ligestilling, mangfoldighed og integration.

I partnerskab med eventbureauet Rockitfish, udarbejdede vi en medarbejder-aktivitet baseret på EDI (Equality, Diversity and Inclusion) for en klient indenfor Skills development. I spillet havde en utilfreds medarbejder hacket virksomhedens system og låst alle filer. For at få filerne ‘frigivet’ måtte hans tidligere kolleger bevise, at de forstod vigtigheden af lighed, mangfoldighed og integration.

I klassisk ‘Escape Room’ stil skulle medarbejderne i grupper, løse gåder og finde spor. Udover at være både sjove og spændene var alle opgaverne skræddersyet til EDI. 

‘Denne aktivitet var en stor succes for HR-teamet – det fyrede i den grad op under vores konkurrenceånd og gav EDI ‘liv’. Virkelig flot leveret og eksekveret af GHP’- chef for HR Professional Services

Få medarbejderene engagerede i organisationens mål og værdier

Tobii, der er førende indenfor eye tracking, opkøbte deres amerikanske konkurrent Dynavox. Det skabte et firma med to forskellige kulturer. At skabe et fælles værdisæt blev derfor en vigtig del af integrationsprocessen af Tobii og Dynavox.

Præsentationer fra scenen blev holdt til et minimum. I stedet blev fokus rettet mod gruppediskussioner, workshops og business games, der inviterede til engagement, fælles indsigt og nye netværk. Afslutningsvis blev et skræddersyet værdispil brugt til kommunikation af virksomhedernes værdier og identitet.

“Vi kom som en gruppe mennesker, der troede, at vi var i team, men vi tager herfra som en familie, der arbejder som et team.” – Tony Pavlik, operativ direktør hos Tobii Dynavox”

La empresa Tobii, líder en “eye tracking” ha comprado a su competidor americano Dynavox,  creando una empresa con dos culturas diferentes. La búsqueda de valores en común fue una parte muy importante en el proceso de integración de Tobii Dynavox.

La reunión no estaba enfocada en las presentaciones sino en los debates grupales, workshops y business games. Así desencademanos el compromiso, el networking y el intercambio de pensamientos e ideas. Finalmente se hizo un juego de Valores a medida para comunicar e integrar los Valores Corporativos.

Embedding Core Values as a International roll-out

Multinational pharmaceutical firm Almirall wanted a solution that would allow them to share their updated core values with employees across six branches across Europe. Employees would need to not only understand these values but also apply them to situations. We developed a workshop structure that allows the company to self-run sessions for up to 40 staff, broken down into smaller teams of five. The workshop took the form of a game, built around the company’s revitalised values. Rather than a competitive game, Almirall was keen for the quiz to spark discussion, to enable them to understand how individuals were adapting to the changes.

Feedback from individuals was incredibly positive. Teams have evidently been comfortable with the familiarity of the board game structure, while still felt challenged and educated by the questions asked and dilemmas posed. This combination of fun and challenge is what makes events such as these so valuable.

Most importantly, it has given Almirall a clear indication of how well their workforce is adapting to the company’s new direction, and what areas might still need addressing. At the end of each two-hour workshop, employees have been debriefed and asked how they feel the session went, and what they felt needed further discussion. This critical feedback has not only helped to evolve the workshop structure, but also the strategic direction of the organisation as a whole.

‘Easy to implement to all levels of the company and easy to use, intuitive, didactic and fun.’

‘A very creative way of generating useful employee insight to move the organisational culture forward.’

Abbvie ønskede at ud kommunikere virksomhedernes værdier på en virkelig levende og engagerende måde og øge forståelsen af, hvad værdierne står for.

Siden et af temaerne i selskabsmødet var musik skræddersyede vi et business spil med udgangspunkt i musikbranchen, der samtidigt indarbejdede Abbvies værdier. Hvert hold fik rollen som Artist and Repertoire Manager for et stort pladeselskab. Deres endelige mål var at “signe” en kunstner med succes ved at fuldføre en række missioner. Værdierne blev videreformidlet på en håndgribelig måde og kommunikationen på tværs af organisationen var en succes.

Lanzamiento global de los Valores Corporativos

La farmacéutica Almirall pidió crear una sesión de workshop interactiva para implantar los nuevos valores en todos los empleados. Se ha realizado en Barcelona aunque tienen oficinas por toda Europa. 

El objetivo es que los empleados entiendan los valores y que los sepan aplicar en situaciones reales. Almirall ha facilitado un quiz para crear un juego competitivo que genere debate de discusión en los empleados y, de esta manera, que sean capaces de entender cómo las personas se adaptan a los distintos cambios. Hemos desarrollado una estructura de workshop que permite a la empresa realizar sesiones de autogestión para 40 empleados, divididos en equipos de cinco. El juego tiene forma de trivial y está basado alrededor de los nuevos valores de Almirall. Los grupos disponen de un tablero de mesa, dados y una tablet donde tendrán que contestar a las preguntas. 

Almirall ha realizado más de 40 sesiones con nosotros, además de los workshops restantes que se han realizado a principios de 2018. El feedback de los participantes ha aumentado positivamente y los grupos se han sentido cómodos y se han familiarizado con la estructura del juego, aprendiendo y comprometiéndose gracias a las preguntas y los dilemas en cuestión. Esta combinación entre diversión y desafío es lo que hace los eventos valiosos. 

 “Fácil de implantar en todos los niveles de la empresa y fácil de usar.  Intuitivo, didáctico y divertido.”

 “Una forma muy creativa de generar una visión profesional en los empleados para avanzar en la cultura empresarial”

Core Values

Objective: Communicate new corporate Values

Abbvie wanted to communicate the corporate values in a really vivid
and engaging way and to increase the understanding of what the values stand for.

Since one of the themes of the company meeting was music we
created a customized music industry business game that incorporated the values of Abbvie. Each team was given the role as A&R for a large record label. Their end goal was to “sign” an artist, by successfully
completing a number of missions. The values were really well understood and well supported across the organization.

“A genuine value was created as it was customized
for us, utilizing our values” – Christian Horn, Abbvie

Creating engagement for off site participants

Powel wanted to create excitement around its Core Values at the annual meeting. However, with 300 of 450 employees not present physically, how to ensure full engagement?

By running a digital business game on laptops and tablets, all teams (even off site ones) could participate with the results and feedback accessible on screens in real time.

Core Values Culture

Embedding Core Values as a International roll-out

Multinational pharmaceutical firm Almirall wanted a solution that would allow them to share their updated core values with employees across six branches across Europe. Employees would need to not only understand these values but also apply them to situations. We developed a workshop structure that allows the company to self-run sessions for up to 40 staff, broken down into smaller teams of five. The workshop took the form of a game, built around the company’s revitalised values. Rather than a competitive game, Almirall was keen for the quiz to spark discussion, to enable them to understand how individuals were adapting to the changes.

Feedback from individuals was incredibly positive. Teams have evidently been comfortable with the familiarity of the board game structure, while still felt challenged and educated by the questions asked and dilemmas posed. This combination of fun and challenge is what makes events such as these so valuable.

Most importantly, it has given Almirall a clear indication of how well their workforce is adapting to the company’s new direction, and what areas might still need addressing. At the end of each two-hour workshop, employees have been debriefed and asked how they feel the session went, and what they felt needed further discussion. This critical feedback has not only helped to evolve the workshop structure, but also the strategic direction of the organisation as a whole.

‘Easy to implement to all levels of the company and easy to use, intuitive, didactic and fun.’

‘A very creative way of generating useful employee insight to move the organisational culture forward.’

Core Values

Get employees dedicated around organizational values and goals

Industry leading eye tracking company Tobii bought its American competitor Dynavox, which created a company with two different cultures. Creating a common set of values was an important part of the integration process of Tobii and Dynavox. 

Presentations from stage were kept to a minimum; instead focus was geared towards group discussions, workshops and business games that triggered engagement, networking and shared insights. Finally, a tailor-made Values Game was used to communicate and achieve buy-in on corporate values and identity.

“We came here as a group of people that thought we were working as a team but we’re leaving here as a family of people working as a team.” – Tony Pavlik, VP of Operations at Tobii Dynavox:
