Blue Chip Technology have been designing and manufacturing embedded and industrial computing solutions for over 30 years. Before embarking on a period of significant growth, the company asked Rubica to help it create a more positive workplace culture. The aim was to improve the health and happiness of its employees which would subsequently support the business in achieving its five-year plan.
The challenge: enabling a plan for growth
Blue Chip Technology (BCT) recognised it was vital to use its culture to positively affect the happiness, health and subsequent motivation of employees. Achieving this would lead to a more productive workforce, improved customer service and the attraction and retention of high performing staff. In combining and achieving these areas, BCT would be well placed to fulfil its ambitious 5-year growth plan.
The solution: shaping a new culture across the business
Rubica was brought on board by Dan Sherwen, the Quality and Organisational Improvement Manager at BCT. The company needed external support to deliver the project and selected Rubica due to our expertise in organisational and culture change, our well-evidenced change methodology, our Culture Change Canvas and our use of performance measures.
The project followed four stages over a three month period:
- Building a project value proposition.
- Conducting an anonymous culture and engagement survey.
- Carrying out a culture inquiry across the business.
- Identifying quick wins and embedding mechanisms to support the change.
