This initiative was hugely successful in freeing that inspiration and organising it in a way that directly and rapidly benefitted the service. This success would have been unthinkable without the robust and sensitive analytical methods developed by Clever Together along with the user-friendly platform they have refined to maximise engagement.
The quality of responses is that much better because quieter voices are heard. This is central because the answers lie with the people. The depth of ownership - the “holy grail” of all employee engagement and staff consultation - is also a game changer because it differs from corporate speak. The values are owned by the staff and are in their own words.
It was an absolutely different experience working with the team from Clever Together. As well as the creative and innovative approach to engagement that it opened our eyes to. They are an incredibly creative group who really helped to spark a level of innovation that wouldn't have been there without them. I would highly recommend them as a partner.
We now focus all our energy on helping leaders involve their people in the process of change, using our take on crowdsourcing: The Clever Together Online Workshop.
