In 2012 ISS launched a new Nordic strategy.
The strategy was the topic of the service conglomerate’s executive conference in January. The conference gathered the Nordic management group and the national top management from Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark with CEO Jeff Gravenhorst.
The conference took the shape of two intensive days focusing on regional synergies, closer partnerships with the customers and optimisation of value chains and organisation. Unlike a traditional conference, this one was designed with an emphasis on intensive workshops, precise presentations and engaging conversations.
Workz was a good partner who combined creative solutions with professional insight and respect for our wishes and expectations
The idea was to use the shared experiences to shine a light on best practice examples, and use them to base new facility services on.
Workz assisted ISS in organising the conference and facilitating workshops. We also designed process tools and a tailor made strategy simulation that focused on aligning the strategy with work/life culture and behaviour.
Furthermore, we assisted with graphics design and the production of a number of movies.
"The conference created a good platform for our regional strategy work and a strong momentum behind the strategic initiatives we have initiated. In a high-paced, results-oriented organisation, it was of utmost importance that the conference was intensive, engaging and productive. We achieved that – especially since Workz was a good partner who combined creative solutions with professional insight and respect for our wishes and expectations" says Finn Vestergaard, Nordic Director of HR, ISS
