Telephonica in the UK (O2) faces continuous change as the tech sector moves ever-onwards. Tangram was tasked with working closely with the HR Director and her direct team to help equip them for these changes.
Telephonica will be selling the O2 business in 2016. As such, the current HR feels it is critical to equip the current O2 management teams with the skills and knowledge to thrive with their new owners. To this end, a series of interconnected leadership courses have been designed and implemented to form a complete programme.
The SLT within Telephonica face huge challenges in managing their people and business in an ever-changing environment. Tangram was tasked with aiding the team work more closely together and understand their unique strengths in facing the challenges ahead.
The team now has a much higher level of trust and understanding between each of them. Rather than just being excellent functional heads who come together once a month for a meeting, they are now forming into a proper team with cross-functional working and higher levels of output.
“It would be great to get your thoughts on next steps. We have some time talking about it at the senior leadership meeting and there is definitely an enthusiasm to continue the good work started at the offsite.“
Business Manager to UK HR Director, O2
