My Team

I feel a strong sense of family in my team

Something they think is unique about Wolff Olins is how the business takes feedback, then shares information with everyone, taking more feedback and forming a cycle for improvement. Recently, the company recently ran global company survey to check-in on how people were feeling and what they would like to see more/less off. The results were presented in all the offices on the same day, sharing global as well as local results to give insights into the whole business' thoughts, similarities and differences. In London the company had a ‘private view' of their results where they hung large printouts of the results charts with people's individual comments below the data so the results were more meaningful. People were able to take their time browsing the ‘exhibition' over drinks and nibbles, discuss the results with each other and the senior team and openly see what other WO offices' results were too.
