Improving collaboration between departments

challenge

To enhance well-being and efficiency at work, focusing on improving internal mobility and collaboration between various departments.

nudge

Various nudges were designed, including a nudge that aimed to improve collaboration between departments by making it tangible and creating engagement. The nudge was a booklet containing five vouchers for a “trip to another department”. Booklets would be distributed by managers, and each voucher would give the holder right to spend half a day in another department, staying valid for 6 months. An annual competition would reward the department that gathers the most vouchers.

Another nudge aimed to improve internal mobility. Employees would be encouraged to consider newly open roles in other departments through positive feedback and testimonies from current employees in the department concerned. Meetings would also be organized with employees in the prospective department.
