With people and partnership at the heart of the organisation, Strategi Solutions is incredibly proud to be announced as a finalist at the UK Company Culture Awards in the ‘Next Generation Initiative’ category.
Made up of a diverse crew, all passionate about finding new ways of telling stories through extraordinary imagination, exceptional creativity, rigorous research, and unique solutions.
Recently turning its attention to an ageing senior leadership team, succession planning has become a key part of ensuring the future of Strategi remains bright. Working to employ passionate, younger individuals, offering them long-term careers with progression and clear benefits, Strategi has formed the ‘StratStars’ initiative.
The initiative initially identified members of the team, all in relevant roles, and with clear ambitions to be on the Board. Each team member was qualified but had no experience to take on those roles yet. The programme was curated to empower, reward, and provide clear development opportunities, marking Strategi as an employer of choice for future employees and securing their future as a business.
In terms of measurables, this initiative has directly and indirectly, contributed to a productivity increase of 24%, a revenue increase of 500k, and absence levels remaining at 0% across the entire business. These figures demonstrate that by continuing down this path, Strategi is on target to meet its 2027 goals.
Aside from these tangible measurements, the initiative has empowered a group of young people who may have otherwise been ignored or allowed to fade into the background. It has given them a voice and a belief that they can influence positive change in the organisation that they work for, which in turn has made them more loyal, more passionate, and more focused on their outputs.
On being shortlisted, Rob Fisher, Managing Director said, “Being at Strategi from the beginning, it’s been a journey that I am so proud of. This initiative ensures we are constantly developing and growing our talent and becoming an employer of choice in the local area. Being shortlisted for this award allows us to raise awareness not only on the importance of harnessing local talent but futureproofing your business too.”
Wendy Dean, CEO added “After working in so many large organisations I knew exactly what we didn’t need to do when I envisioned Strategi, and with such a great team we have worked together to cultivate something that I have never seen anywhere else. Every person in this business shares my vision, my passion, and my drive for the future of this organisation, and I know that through both good and bad they stand here with me. This Award would mean more than you can imagine to us all.”
By fostering this employee-first environment, Strategi is more than an organisation. Strategi is a feeling, an emotion and a collective.
An unbreakable unit, each individual’s loyalty, love and genuine care for the business shines through in their everyday actions. By investing in building a culture that encourages each person to grow, learn and be supported down any path they choose to take, Strategi has created a hybrid of diverse individuals whom all share a common goal.
Winning this award would cement the culture that has been developed over the past 7 years, supporting efforts to continue to develop and grow for many years to come.
Put simply, Strategi Solutions help businesses perform better, but in reality, is so much more than that.
