Safe by motivationThe best industrial organizations aim for a 'zero accident' safety record. To achieve this, they need rules and procedures - but they also need to engender a safety culture inside the company, shared and supported by everyone.
Industrial brandingCredible, trustworthy communication requires consistency and authenticity. In the world of industry marketing, both can be best achieved by careful branding. A strong brand, fitting the company identity and making a difference in the market place, facilitates external and internal communications.
Excellence cultureCreating a culture of excellence is a challenging endeavor. It can only be attained through intrinsic motivation of employees.
We have helped a listed chemical company to launch excellence initiatives across different areas of activity.
Digital sales toolsDigital tools dramatically change the way sales forces present their company's offering whilst improving the availability and the quality of information showcased. Successful digitalization requires integration of data sources and presentation tools.
Building resilienceContinuously providing optimum results is a challenge for any company. Resilient people perform better in difficult circumstances, under pressure and in complex environments.
We have accompanied a company in the aerospace industry to successfully enter the market for satellite control.
Innovation marketingTechnological innovations need explanation to be understood and valued. Communicating clearly and simply on advanced features and tangible benefits for professional targets needs multiple technical and conceptual skills.
Organizational PsychologyAn industry leading organization wanted to improve the feedback and communication structure between leaders and followers on several different hierarchical levels.
Reducing AbsentismAbsentism is a major cost factor for all industrial organizations. Thereby average absentism can vary strongly between teams and work groups - even though they work in the same branch, with the same product or at the same construction site.
