Replacing Silos

“The Silo Mentality” – as defined by the Business Dictionary – is a mindset present when individual departments or sectors do not wish to share information with others in the same company. This mentality is known to reduce efficiency in overall operations, reduce morale, and often contributes to the demise of a productive company culture.

Departmental silos are seen as a growing pain for organisations of all sizes. It is the duty of the executive leaders and management to prepare and equip their teams with the right mindset to break down this destructive organisational barrier.

of customer experience professionals state that 'silos' are a significant barrier to providing seamless customer experience

Removing Silos - through common skills

At Experience UK, we aim to ‘Remove Silos” by facilitating joint learning sessions with employees from all areas of the company. By working in mixed, departmental groups when the topic of learning is of equal interest to all participants, we begin to blur barriers and encourage cross-departmental working. This can also be achieved in smaller, more focused groups, detailed below.

Our workshops, based on shared corporate competencies, are designed to develop employees’ mindsets and skills that have been identified as key to enhancing the overall company performance, such as:

Collaboration  – Self as leader – Business focus – Accountability – Influence – Presenting our Value Proposition – Time management – Habit forming – Coaching and being coached – Going the extra mile – Understanding customers and competitors – efficient use of technology – Strategy aligned behaviour

Marketing – Customer Centricity
Sales and Finance – Working Together
Learning and Development – Fuelling the Business
HR – Constant Communication
