After interviewing around 20 companies, Wendy’s team came across Better Organizations by Design (BOxD) and knew right away it was a good fit. As Wendy said, “It felt like even though we hadn’t hired them yet, we were already brainstorming. And they opened up so many new thoughts to reach our goals.”
BWP realized they were embarking on a journey where there was a lot they didn’t know. Said Wendy, “BOxD helped us to think about our firm’s culture, our demographics, and all the areas of DEI. Really they helped us become change agents in our own industry.”
The BOxD consultants started with a discovery process that included a survey of all associates. They also formed focus groups of associates and interviewed the Board and executive leaders. BOxD lead the entire process internally and kept all feedback and information confidential. They created a safe space for these conversations, which can become emotionally charged. BOxD had the knowledge and experience to be an effective thought leader and coach. They helped BWP build trust with their associates through openness and transparency.
