The number of accidents caused by falls in the workplace is higher than the number of those injured in road traffic. This results in annual damages covered by insurance amounting to over 300 million euros. That is why 30+ employers’ liability associations across Germany have united to not only spread more information about the dangers via a nationwide campaign, but to also bring about a change in the behaviour of those with insurance. With a campaign budget of around 1.5 million euros, savings of more than 20 million euros were achieved in the first year alone.
Sony Germany launched a change process with the aim of reducing fixed costs by outsourcing and process optimization. It was a comprehensive programme that involved all departments and examined each and every process. By means of supporting communication, a more transparent process arose, which created confidence and succeeded in breaking routines. In total, 91 per cent of the workforce participated in the evaluation – 84 per cent saw the necessity of the process, around 80 per cent regarded the communication and integration as successful.
The State Chancellery of North Rhine-Westphalia intends to install a sustainable and fair procurement system in the public sector with its “newtrade NRW” project. Quality, socially fair production conditions and environmental compatibility should take the place of the dominant pricing issues. The policy in the long-term should therefore strengthen the local economy and prevent any price dumping through low-cost production. Such a paradigm shift requires communication in order to promote acceptance. SSP was contracted to support the project as their communications team.
With more than 1,670 sites in Germany, Austria, Belgium, Switzerland and Luxembourg – of which around 370 are hardware stores and approx. 1,100 are construction material, wood and tiling retailers – Hagebau is a network of independent, medium-sized traders. How do you synchronize communication in such a broadly based system of independent partners? How do you prevent the content or the communication from being jeopardized in the worst case scenario? How do you enhance the brand image through integrated communications? SSP conducted the analysis and concept development with the company’s management.
The building materials group Xella is one of the market leaders with around 1.2 billion euros in turnover, and has teamed together with SSP to proactively develop a crisis manual, which is intended to serve primarily as an aid to production managers at the various operational sites. The agency carried out a relaunch after a successful test phase.
How can you develop a sustainable means of communication with relevant decision-making groups? How can individual positions be consolidated and conveyed credibly? How do you make your voice heard among opinion leaders and relevant peer groups? SSP has developed a system for communicating with these target groups for Westdeutscher Rundfunk and has been implementing this successfully with those responsible in the company.
