Every month they bring the company together from up and down the country for a knowledge exchange to give different departments the opportunity to update the rest of the team on what’s going on in their world. Apart from day-to-day team interactions, their "Dragon's Den" concept is a good example of how LHH works together as a team. Every year employees are put into cross-functional groups and asked to come up with an idea that will either help solve a problem for a client or make LHH a better place to work. The group is given time to work together on creating a ‘big idea’ and how they would envisage executing their plan. At LHH UK's annual conference they are asked to present their idea to the Global Head of Strategy and four of their clients, who act as the "Dragon's". The room is set up like Dragon's Den and the Dragons have £15,000 to invest in the idea. The purpose of this initiative is to facilitate true innovation across the business whilst encouraging employees to build and sustain strong cross-functional working relationships.

Staff truly believe in making a difference for every person they help. Over 98% of people understand and believe in the LHH purpose (taken from 2015 engagement survey). All of their values are up on posters throughout the office and in every meeting room. All new employees are shown these core values and vision statements when they join the company and are often tested on them. Throughout the year, staff congratulate other employees using key values. It could be that they completed a difficult project with a smile on their face, or they showed initiative and made something happen - they are praised and congratulated at LHH and all link back to the company values. The company values are on tote bags and mugs around the office.
