Maxima Employees’ Speed Board

CLIENT

Maxima, a retail chain

CHALLENGE

Employee Engagement

SITUATION

Today’s business practices have shown that involving employees in the process of solving a company’s internal challenges can become the key to success. This format is equally beneficial for both the employees and the companies. Maxima has a large number of excellent and enterprising employees, who perform their duties responsibly and can offer new ideas to the organisation. Therefore, it was decided to establish an internal Speed Board including employees from various fields.

TASK

To create an internal campaign to introduce the employees’ Speed Board and to attract members.

GOAL

To attract at least 300 employees to register and run for the Speed Board and to strengthen the company’s image as an attractive and career-oriented employer.

SOLUTIONS

  • Speed Board in a visual style, replicating the concept of a movie premiere. It was used as a base for other measures to encourage employees from other areas of the company to apply: electronic movie tickets-invitations in a newsletter format, posters in stores, invitations and movie tickets for the store employees, employees’ computer screensavers.
  • The project’s micro-website www.maxima.lt/greitis with all the information about the project, a set of frequently asked questions (FAQs) and a registration form.
  • Project communication in the media and on the internal intranet, informing the employees what the Speed Board is about.
