Initial situation A company is struggling with a high level of absenteeism. Various measures such as the introduction of a vitality program, personal conversations and training have no effect.
Approach LANZ is organising a workshop with employees who are currently experiencing sickness absence, recovered from it or at risk. LANZ supports them in a first step to define their own context for vitality and, in a second step, to create it. For this, observations and findings are collected from the participants. Subsequently, promoting and obstructing patterns are identified and the employees contribute initial ideas. These are presented to management and tested together for desirability, feasibility and profitability.
For the best scoring ideas prototypes are developed by employees and tested in practice. Critical reflection in groups supports the further development into services and products that are widely received by the organization and can therefore easily be incorporated. Management is informed at regular intervals about progress and makes adjustments where necessary.
Result By involving all people in the process in his or her thinking, new, feasible frameworks have been developed. Instead of imposing and controlling matters, employees have been able to develop and build something new themselves.
