The Challenge

Since floating on the London Stock Exchange in 1995, Wilmington plc has grown to a global business with nearly 1 000 employees across 20 plus companies, serving clients in more than 150 countries around the globe. In today’s data-driven world, Wilmington’s driving ambition is to turn knowledge into an advantage for the benefit of its customers. To ensure a smooth transition to its next growth phase and to energize the organisation worldwide, Wilmington plc needed to transform itself from a group of independent companies to a unified business with a shared vision. The recent focus has been on connecting the views of expertise, distributed across the company.

The Solution

Anyone with experience of an extensive business transformation understands the enormous task faced by Wilmington’s leadership team of unifying a global business. To align the company with its new strategy and vision, Wilmington plc launched several projects that support the transformation into a unified business, raise awareness of the Wilmington brand, and encourage increased employee engagement. Along with a comprehensive digital strategy to unite and engage clients, another key initiative focused on boosting employee empowerment with Smarp. Wilmington plc wanted an everyday tool that would make it easier for employees to find and share the most relevant content – thus showcasing Wilmington’s expertise, while boosting their own professional profiles online.
