DigitasLBi transforms businesses for the digital age by blending their left and right brain people together to delight clients.
People are the key driver of both value and cost. Achieving improved profitability meant really knowing what blend was needed, when and how.
We worked with DigitasLBi Operations and Finance teams to build and embed a workforce planning approach, tool and mindset. We prototyped with the UK business, and supported the launch across the business and talent teams, facilitating more powerful discussions using the evidence and ‘what if?’ scenarios to build robust plans.
