Case studies

Cargill (Global) - Cargill identified an issue with their management communication around compensation policy and reward. Research by New Directions identified that as well as a skill gap there was a knowledge gap as well - not many managers understood the policy or how decisions were made. Therefore a knowledge and skills programme was designed and rolled out globally. Knowledge was increased through the use of a distance learning text, and a one day workshop to train managers in communicating compensation policy was designed, using specially developed games, exercises, and bespoke DVD scenarios scripted and produced by our partners Corporate Drama.
