As the world’s largest manufacturer of pumps and pump technology today, Danish based Grundfos Pumps, who are a foundation, are continuing to invest heavily in the future and have set themselves an ambitious target of quadrupling in size before 2025.
On 20th June, Grundfos Pumps staff from all over the UK joined together and became part of a global launch together with 17,000 colleagues who participated in 1200 similar workshops speaking 93 languages, and all this happened in a 24 hour period – and the message? To hear more about the revitalised company values that will help everyone to understand the core beliefs that will assist with taking the company to the next level.
Every individual employee across the globe received a personal invitation to, not only take part, but to discuss the values and what they mean to them. As a result of the day thousands of video clips and text statements have been uploaded to a company-wide web site for all staff to access.
Staff at Leighton Buzzard, with Pete Reynolds who is the General Manager of the UK sales and marketing company leading the proceedings, enthusiastically took part in all the workshops and shared their views with their colleagues both in the UK and across the world. Another hit was the pig roast that was laid on by the company at lunchtime which also met with a great reception!
