As a Management Consultant at Accenture, Lauren worked for one of their key banking clients. The bank undertook a Skills Needs Analysis to identify critical capability gaps within their organisation. Following the analysis, the bank focused on 3 core streams – Build, Borrow and Buy. Working under the Build Stream, Lauren supported the rollout of specialised skills pathways across the organisation to support colleague development. The changes were companywide and affected 10,000 employees, with particular focus on those who had roles that were not deemed future fit, c.2000. The initiative was underpinned by a larger groupwide change initiative of shifting from a mandatory to self-directed learning culture. Lauren redesigned and executed an end-to-end communication and engagement strategy for the Learning team, spanning across 10 different workstreams, to drive the change. She increased colleague adoption by 36% by leveraging digital content such as videos, interactive documents, and design graphics, and analysed data and engagement metrics to assess change impact (open rates, drop off points, adoption.), enabling the team to meet their 2023 Sustainability KPI’s.
