Cadmatic has offices in nine different countries, and it was clear from the very beginning that the values would be formed together with the whole organisation. The organizations had different ways of operating and working but, through inclusive value work, the management was able to grasp the employees’ way of thinking right from the start.
A digital platform bringing a global organisation together
In Cadmatic, the value work consisted of management interviews, workshops for the whole organization, small group sessions, and peer sparring. The work was supported using Humap’s digital platform HowSpace both in large, multi-location workshops, and in between meetings.
The discussion started flowing surprisingly effortlessly on the platform. The tool had an important role in having discussions and sharing thoughts when people participated in the workshops from different parts of the world. Making the discussion transparent was also an eye-opener for me.
Value work was actually a trigger for doing this. We were able to build a dialogical connection between all our offices. Teams around the world had their voices heard. The spirit of collaboration surely grows through these kinds of processes. Our employees appreciated the fact that they were able to participate in the value process from the very beginning, notes Rantala cheerfully."
