Strategy Design Forum
Strategies are more effective when key staff and stakeholders have a role in shaping them. Ethelo allows teams to vote, have a dialogue, and suggest possibilities in determining key decisions. By taking into account multiple insights, organizations can shortlist more robust and highly-supported strategic initiatives.
Portland Hotel Society
Following significant changes to the organization’s top management, Vancouver’s Portland Hotel Society recognized that a highly participatory approach to strategic decisions was needed. By streamlining the engagement of 94 staff spread across multiple locations and many varied programs, Ethelo allowed the team of directors to unlock valuable insights needed for better results across 5 strategic areas.
Public Works and Government Services
Staff Action Planning
Staff Engagement often fails at the point of plan delivery. Ethelo is being assessed to see how this failure point can be overcome. Public Works staff already identified a set of improvement actions as a result of an existing annual survey and follow-up workshop. Ethelo is being used to combine management’s rigor and budgetary constraints with the staff’s knowledge and needs to generate a pragmatic, highly-supported action plan. The number of potential permutations of plan is in the millions, but Ethelo will create positive staff engagement and help management see the best results quickly and transparently.
Vancouver Coastal Health
Clearly expressed agreements setting out mutual expectations are a critical component of a healthy and vibrant work culture. Vancouver Coastal Health’s employee engagement team deployed Ethelo to streamline a real-time engagement with staff to develop an Employee Accord. The platform enabled staff to shortlist the most important set of expectations they had of management, from among 700+ potential combinations, and clearly articulate the kind of organizational support they needed in order to do their jobs effectively.
