Organizational transformation is the new norm. Helping leaders and their teams navigate change across global enterprises is an essential ingredient to thriving in the new world of work. From adaptability, to resilience, capacity and competency building, to the launch of agile, Nexus is helping human resource professionals and the companies they work for redefine their world of work.
MAKE CHANGE AND TRANSFORMATION SMOOTH AND SEAMLESS
The Nexus solution was comprehensive but simple for audiences to use and digest. The program consisted of: change management and team enablement toolkits, a redesigned, highly navigable homepage, quick reference cards with clever, succinct explanations of the concepts users need most with recommended actions, fun self-assessment tools that allow users to measure their readiness for change with recommend resources to help them prepare; and highly engaging and illustrative podcasts can be listened to just about anywhere, at any time. High impact videos and podcasts all make for an immersive bite sized learning experience that is easy to understand, easy to use and easy to share.
HBC Radically Better
The last few years has been turbulent for retailers, especially with Amazon disrupting the space and leveraging their network to push competitors out. HBC recognized the need for an equally disruptive strategy to respond to market realities, and asked Nexus to help. Our solution was a company-wide performance program called “Radically Better.” The program focused on streamlining current processes, driving cross-functional collaboration, and encouraging entrepreneurial thinking and higher performance from individual team members. Nexus developed a communications campaign that had the primary objective of empowering employees and help them take an active role in the transformation journey, their own success, and the success of the company.
HBC Our Move
HBC was under-going a massive workplace consolidation by integrating five banners across five physical locations from Manhattan to Brookfield Place in the World Trade Center. Nexus developed a communications campaign under the theme of “Welcome to your new office. The adventure begins.” Key communications addressed the unique cultures of Saks Fifth Avenue, Lord & Taylor, Gilt and HBC, physical location changes (Uptown, Midtown, Chelsea all to Battery Park) along with the transition to open plan and agile office. It was the perfect convergence of culture, physical office move and workplace transformation – all in one project. The result? A smooth move. An integrated culture. A well received and well managed office transformation.
