Here at Hyve we know that in-person collaboration produces the greatest results. So, when our UK digital marketing team was getting ready to deploy a brand-new customer management tool, it made sense for them to meet face-to-face with our team in New York which has been using the tool for some time. This would provide our teams with the opportunity to share learnings, align strategies and streamline processes, all ultimately benefitting our customers.
Artemis Koutsouva, Senior Digital Marketing Manager based in London, was assigned the mission and boarded a plane to spend a month working alongside our New York team - soaking up all their knowledge and experience, while creating lasting connections which have improved the way our teams work together since.
The idea for this trip came about during a meeting with Stuart Thomas, Hyve’s Head of Global Partnerships, who suggested that this would be an excellent development opportunity for Artemis. Stuart emphasised the value of inter-office collaboration:
Hyve’s approach to developing people is anything but one-size-fits-all. Group HR Director Lucy Powell explains:
Through this secondment, Artemis learned key new skills which she was able to pass on to her team once back in the UK. She struck up lasting relationships which help her day-to-day and gained priceless life experiences.
