Our client’s challenge

Knights Brown is a privately owned, independent, regional construction business with specialist energy sector capability delivered nationwide and in the Republic of Ireland. Knights Brown’s strategy is built around their people. They don’t have aspirations to become a billion dollar company with thousands of employees. They want to grow to fund the aspirations of their people.

Knights Brown, through their people strategy want to develop their own. But they also play an important part in finding talent to develop. The work Knights Brown is involved in affects communities around the globe. They are helping communities with construction support. They are building facilities to help lay foundations for long term infrastructure development. There’s lots to feel proud of.

Our solution and results

The Big Picture People, in partnership with LeoDo, helped Knights Brown create a bespoke Discovery Map® which allowed its new employees to understand the company’s vision and purpose in a visual, Big Picture format.

Knights Brown were looking for a big picture to share during their onboarding process. They wanted it to help embed the culture of the business from an early stage and to make new starters aware that they are the main focus at Knights Brown. It backed up the company vision which is: ‘To create a company people aspire to work for where we will always deliver the best experience for our customers.’

The Big Picture People worked with Knights Brown to understand their objectives. Following this, The Big Picture People and Leodo ran a one-day face-to-face workshop with the leadership team at Knights Brown. We developed an understanding of the company’s narrative. The facilitated workshop enabled The Big Picture People to curate and record the content of the Discovery Map®. After the workshop, Knights Brown provided feedback on the outputs which were integrated into revisions. Once finalised, a high-resolution digital version of their Discovery Map® was sent to the client for them to print. Smaller embeddable elements from The Discovery Map® were also supplied to use in presentations and other communications materials.
