Background: Global Manufacturer Needs to be Nimble
Whirlpool is more than 100 years old, with 100,000 employees worldwide. The company is the biggest home appliance manufacturer in the world.
The Challenge: Dated Office Tools and Work Environment
Whirlpool realized it needed to become more nimble and foster innovation to keep up with the competition. Their office tools and work environment were dated. Executives wanted to undertake a culture change that would encourage collaboration and innovation among employees and teams.
The Solution: Tools That Foster Innovation
Whirlpool made many changes to make their vision for the new work environment a reality. They implemented a work-from-anywhere policy. They switched to G Suite (formerly Google Apps for Work), which lead to increased productivity. They installed Chromebox for Meetings and took advantage of Google Hangouts, making communication easier among teams spread across the globe. They redesigned workspaces. In short, Whirlpool made it easier for teams to work together and innovate.
