When the headquarters of an international IT group moves into a new building and the staff are faced with new open-plan offices without a fixed workplace instead of individual offices, good communication is essential. When the new building was still under construction, we had already made a video for this client which, via the intranet, awakened anticipation and a keen interest in this future way of working, rather than fear. We also supported the inauguration of the building with a Family Day and an event for retired staff. We derived the concept for the inauguration celebration, with 80 invited guests from the worlds of politics and business, from the building’s architecture. This was built up in just 40 minutes as a surprise when the guests were touring the building after an aperitif.
