Using our Steps to Change approach, we worked in partnership with stakeholders in Asda to create a scalable, consistent and engaging programme for colleagues from all business units, including head office, in-store, and distribution.
We began by engaging the executive and senior leadership with a face-to-face intervention which explored their role in creating an inclusive culture. This bespoke programme enabled them to see clearly the current reality at Asda, as well as to own their role as leaders in supporting, embedding and sustaining an inclusive culture. 170 senior leaders participated and we tailored the programme for each business division (for example, head office colleagues or those based more regionally) to ensure it resonated with every single person. Significant time was set aside in this session for leaders to explore what they could do to change their own behaviours, and help others to do the same.
