How we've made workplaces better

We saved a client $30,000 a year in rental costs

A small business needed a high-powered CEO

We saved a client $30,000 a year in rental costs

A small business needed a high-powered CEO

Opportunity

A small, self-funded membership business wanted to transition their physical office to a 100% distributed workplace. 

As part of their larger business strategy, the board wanted to attract a high performing CEO who could help them position for the future. The CEO believed that a 100% distributed work model could help the business to recruit more freely; without a physical office the organisation could recruit new team members no matter where they were based. 

With a large number of employees now working from home multiple days a week and no client meetings taking place at the office (due to the organisation’s customer base being spread over both NZ and Australia), the CEO realised the office had ceased being relevant to most of their business operations. 

Transformed Teams prepared managers and teams for the transformation to distributed work through: 

 

  1. Team member training 
  2. Problem-solving workshop for team and practical issues
  3. Updated performance management system to become outcomes-oriented
  4. Introduction of new video technology to support remote work
  5. One-on-one coaching for team members and leaders
  6. Work, Health and Safety checks for home office set up
  7. Best practice employment policies

The client declared the move from the old model to a 100% distributed work model a complete success. All pre-existing team members stayed with the business. And when they needed to recruit a new CEO, the owner called to say “I’ve got a new problem, I’ve got far too many candidates to choose from – I am having trouble shortlisting them, they’re all that good.” They successfully recruited an experienced CEO to take the business to its next level of growth.

 

The client now saves $30,000 per year on rental costs alone as their physical office has become obsolete. They have increased their profile nationally in Australia and New Zealand.  

Opportunity

An ambitious leader wanted his team members to develop a flexible mindset. 

In this team of around 40 people, some team members were resistant to change. Friction arose when their approach started to hold back progress. Our client wanted to create an attractive team culture that motivated all his team members – one where everyone was encouraged to work and think flexibly. 

Ultimately, the client believed that if they could move to a flexible workstyle, it could be a powerful symbol of a new culture. Working through the challenges together would build teamwork. Together the team could become more innovative and adaptable. 

Transformed Teams prepared managers and teams to work flexibly by: 

  1. Pre-assessment with our Flexible Work Exploratory Survey
  2. Employee and manager training
  3. Moderate team co-design workshops
  4. Supported eight-week team trials
  5. ‘TechShop’ sessions facilitated through the organisation’s IT support
  6. Consolidated team charters, reflecting learnings
  7. Post-assessment via our Flexible Work Post-Trial Survey

The client achieved a significant boost in work culture: 

  • Job satisfaction rose from 76% to 91%
  • 71.4% of team members reported a positive impact on their wellbeing
  • 28.57% agreed that the quality of their work was impacted positively 
  • Overall engagement rose from 72% to 85%

Team members made comments including “The culture around flexible work is now really positive… There are no negative connotations.”

Our client was particularly pleased that team members who were previously resistant to change joined the journey. Several started to work flexibly themselves and anecdotally, previous issues they had held fell by the wayside.

Job Satisfaction Jumped to 91% within three months

Director | Cause and Effective

Nina is one of those rare business leaders who lifts her head above the trench of today to envision the workplace of tomorrow. For Nina it is one of distributed work teams - a workforce that reaches beyond the restrictions of a traditional office environment. What stands her apart from other workforce futurists is that Nina has developed tools and processes to assist individuals, teams and organisations to successfully transition to an impactful, more satisfying, new world of work. I have leveraged Nina's foresight and skills in the past and will continue in the future. I thoroughly recommend you do too if you are interested in leading a more efficient and motivated team.
