A new way of working. What do employees need? How do they apply this in practice? And how do you make sure that an internal change flourishes among the employees?
Since 2016, The Hague city council has a new way of working: Working with Purpose. Where the citizens are central and council employees are challenged to do what’s necessary, all with the aim of providing the citizen with the best service possible. But how do you make sure that everyone can get started with this new way of working?
The Hague City Council wanted Working with Purpose to come to life and be experienced interactively during the staff meeting. So that employees could learn from each other and together determine the next step in applying this new way of working (even more) to daily practice.
Over 350 IPV employees attended the ‘Making the Next Move Together’ afternoon in De Broodfabriek in Rijswijk. Together, they played ‘The Big Teamwork Game’. A game developed by the Oval Office, completely customized, based on the available content provided by the City Council. Full of unique questions and creative assignments about the citizen of The Hague, the employees and the most important themes. Meaning that individual and team development points and insights were gained in a light-hearted and interactive manner.
The game remains available for current and new employees to play, ensuring Working with Purpose remains top of mind.
