EC Harris is the leading international built asset consultancy, helping clients make the most from their investment and expenditure in built assets. International in their approach, EC Harris is a large organisation employing over 2000 in the UK alone.
The brief was for Avenue to conceive an application to sit within the organisation's intranet, that would allow their employees to clearly identify career routes through the company, and encourage personal development within roles. The challenge we faced was to simplify the EC Harris career structure. At the time of the project, there were 7 service lines within EC Harris and more than 51 roles and responsibilities that an employee can take fulfil. Employees can progress to a desired role through multiple paths and so ensuring that each instance was recognised in an easy to follow manner was essential.
Avenue delivered a solution that engaged the employee, and presented career progression options in a logical, informative way. This heavily supported the Learning & Development department’s objectives in ensuring employees are able to swiftly identify their opportunities within the organisation and manage their advancement within EC Harris. Whilst the purpose of this intranet tool was primarily intended to engage the employee, it also needed an interface that the Learning & Development team could interact with in order to keep key information up to date. We developed a bespoke admin panel for EC Harris to use to maintain content within the tool.
This framework has been very well received by the business. There is a high level of employee traffic to the tool, and in addition the framework is utilised during presentations and meetings which is above and beyond the intended use. The client commented, "Avenue provided EC Harris with the design and functionality of a career map to support the following key outcomes:
• Visibility of roles and role requirements in our organisational matrix
• Personal ownership of career development
• Identification of personal strengths and development of appropriate targets and development plans
• Identification of linear and non-linear career paths"
Avenue delivered against the brief, introduced creative design concepts and quickly understood our needs. We would recommend Avenue for similar projects
