Following the integration of two asset management companies there were problems of mutual understanding and co-operation. The legacy cultures remained essentially intact and too much energy was being dissipated in internal strife; there was even competition for business between the two legacy organisations.
The project involved designing and conducting a two-day senior leadership team workshop in three geographical locations to focus on managing the integration of the two companies. The interactive day involved reviewing the integration activities to date and identifying key issues and themes that were blocking them or reducing their effectiveness. The leadership teams produced action plans to address the issues and rolled it out to senior team members around Europe. The workshop was then conducted with the next level of leadership before being rolled out to all personnel.
As a result, the in-company Temperature Check Survey conducted 6 months later indicated a wholesale shift in employee engagement. Scores for overall satisfaction improved by 22% from the prior year.
