There are projects that go well and there are those that deliver such excellent results that you want to shout about them. This is the case with Syngenta Seeds. Syngenta recently enlisted Herman Miller’s Consulting team to orchestrate a change management and communications program to support its move into a new headquarters in Minnetonka, Minnesota.
Syngenta did everything right. It began the change efforts before construction and it frequently communicated with its 300 employees along the way. Budget and timing issues often force compromises onto change management plans. Not here. Syngenta took our advice, worked with us to develop a plan, and together we ran with it.
Syngenta realized the benefits of tapping into proven best practices. And, its willingness to apply its resources to the full execution of the plan paved the way for successful change–the kind everyone could get behind.
The energy and time it invested in change management made a huge difference in the response from employees and success of the move.
