Brand & Culture

Internal Branding

Let us help you shine a light on what makes your organization special and the values that make it possible. At Cardigan, we work with you to develop messaging, visuals, and campaigns to engage and educate your employees on who you are, where you’re going, and how, together, you can get there.

Employer Branding

In today’s war for talent, competitive pay isn’t enough; employees are looking for a great place to work and an organization whose values are consistent with their own. We work with you to develop an employer brand that attracts candidates who fit your culture and that celebrates the values that make your company unique.

360 Culture Inventory

Organizations with a strong culture can rely on that culture versus rules to ensure consistency in decision-making, leadership, and behavior across the company. Is your culture not getting you the performance and results you want? Opportunities with employee moral and or retention? Let us identify ways to strengthen and improve alignment.

Employee Recognition

A strong recognition program doesn’t have to be expensive, it just needs to be effective. Let us help you design a program that will reward the behaviors that lead to fulfilling your brand promise.

Team Building Workshops

Breakthroughs occur when employees have a clear understanding of company values and how they, and their team, contribute to the overall purpose of the organization. That’s why we focus our team building workshops on building a team identity and utilize the Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator* to aid employees in communicating with one another. A fun workshop with group exercises and self-discovery will increase teamwork and productivity within your team.

ORGANIZATIONAL CHANGE MANAGEMENT

People

We help you identify stakeholders and groups affected by the change and devise strategies to move them from resistance to acceptance. At the same time, we identify bright spots in your organization to serve as change agents and influencers, which can help increase the acceptance and speed of your change effort.

Communication

We assist you with communication, from developing a campaign for your initiative to drafting tailored, tactical communications for employees affected by the change.

Impacts

We work with your subject matter experts to understand the difference between today and tomorrow for each affected role. This work provides a clear picture about what is different pre and post change.

Training

We work with your internal resources, or identify external resources, to draft any training necessary for your change initiative. Once training is developed, we create and execute the training plan.
