“Key insights, learnings and implications are easier to identify”
~ Trade Marketing Director
Reckitt prides itself on placing employee wellness at the heart of its operations. So, when the General Manager of the UK Health Team identified some potential risks to wellbeing - in the shape of meeting fatigue and reporting overload - they decided to act swiftly. Together, Reckitt and Board Intelligence rolled out a smarter meeting model across the UK Health division. This model aimed to boost employee morale and improve work/life balance.
Employees spent up to 17 hours writing reports. Because they weren’t clear about what should be covered – they ended up over-reporting and duplicating work.
Unclear briefs led to reports that contained too much of the wrong information. Insights were hard to extract, hindering informed decision making.
Lengthy reports and information overload meant that meetings often overran and lacked direction.
The team began using templates to define each paper’s scope, along with a briefing tool that made clear what different reports needed to include.
Employees were trained on the principles of high impact reporting, presenting data intelligently, and meeting facilitation. This training included detailed qualitative feedback on their papers.
UK team members spend less time dissecting information and clarifying points of uncertainty during meetings.
Since working with us, members of the UK team told us that they feel clearer on what to include (and what to leave out) and that they spend less time writing reports.
The UK team now produce better board papers with actionable insights. Our on-demand training courses allow for continued improvement.
The team now say that their meetings are shorter, more strategic and produce better outcomes.
