Testimonial – Munters Ambassador Programme

This testimonial is related to Munters Ambassador Programme MAP, a global change programme with four cohorts for a total of over 100 managers, designed to enable stronger business performance through creating a ‘One Munters’ collaborative culture.

‘There have been significant impacts from the partnership with VA. It has been very inspiring and rewarding to take Munters’ official and unofficial leaders to a much higher level of trust. The sessions have enabled them to spread the message and attitude across the company; to see their enthusiasm has been enormously inspirational for us in Group Management.

We measure the effectiveness of this work in terms of customer satisfaction and employee motivation and see a high correlation between employee motivation – which is dependent on good leadership on one side, and customer satisfaction on the other, the latter always driving profitability. Customer satisfaction is at a record level, and leadership quality improvement and employee motivation at the highest level ever.

There is correlation between the profitability in a local business unit and the employee motivation; business units using the tools from the MAP program typically have a 25 % higher operating margin.

‘VA Consultants have very good insights into connecting business improvement with behaviour change. They are specifically good at understanding both the organisational psychology and the applicable individual psychology. They also have excellent skills in designing and delivering high impact development sessions. VA is a consulting firm that can be your long term speaking partner and deliver significant improvement to your organisation in systemic culture change work’
