Making it happen: the meaningful workplace master plan
A meaningful workplace is built from the company’s master plan – a “strategic platform” used exclusively by senior management – that defines the three core elements of “ambition” (purpose), “feelings” (values)” and “behavior” (building a culture).
This master plan drives all subsequent activities, which include:
- Macro Plans – how the business itself will be evolved,
- Group Plans – how groups of employees will be engaged, and
- Solo Plans – how individual employees will be personally engaged.
Macro Planning puts the business’s structure, policies and procedures through the filter of the master plan to identify opportunities to better align the work experience to the agreed ambition, feelings and behavior.
Group Planning develops tailored interactions between the company and groups of its employees (e.g. by location, discipline, seniority, etc) that engage employees in the principles and practices of the master plan (note: not the master plan itself).
Solo Planning creates the means by which individuals come to personally identify with and internalize the principles and practices of the master plan (note: not the master plan itself).
