What would you do if about a hundred of Denmark’s best brains were at your disposal for a day? – That was the proposition to Red Cross from the engineering and consultancy business COWI. The initiative was to help the charity organisation develop new concepts concerning water and sanitation for the benefit of distant mountain villages in Laos.
Workz has challenged us and has ensured that the effective concept was carried through to our full satisfaction
The setting for the developmental work was COWI’s annual activity day, which in 2013 combined getting along with your colleagues, knowledge sharing and collaboration with development for a good cause.
Workz assisted with concept development and facilitation on a day that offered idea development, model work, prototyping and finally a pitching of the best ideas.
"This year COWI chose to further develop our activity day, which is already rich in tradition, in collaboration with Red Cross. We joined forces in order to make a difference for a good cause, and assisted by Workz we developed a concept which put the multidisciplinary knowledge sharing and holistic innovation in turbo drive. To COWI this was a new approach and the day was energised. Workz has challenged us and has ensured that the effective concept was carried through to our full satisfaction" says Finn Bech Andersen, Head of HR, COWI Denmark
