Through employee workshops and surveys, four ‘Barr Behaviours’ had been identified to help manage performance, harness activity, develop people and build strong working relationships. Our challenge was to make these an enduring and integral part of life at A.G. Barr. We needed to articulate each one in a way that every employee could identify with, then develop a range of internal communications to launch, promote and embed them.
How do can you create an employer brand that’s as iconic as your products?
Based on this experience and the company’s research, we decided to express the values and behaviours through individual employees. We learned that this was about building pride and making the message meaningful, relevant and authentic.
We rolled out and installed a range of materials to demonstrate Barr Behaviours in action, including communications and environmental graphics. By taking a phased approach from its launch, we maintained momentum around the new internal brand.
