Active FM

The Business
Active FM provide clients with a range of workplace services to cover all aspects associated with workplace change. Whether  upsizing, downsizing or refreshing an existing workspace; Active can design, build, furnish, manage, move and fix any workplace.

The Challenge
Active's leadership team found the demands of day to day issues made it difficult to plan strategically. Managers had lost touch with why customers valued Active's services

Support delivered
Director Adrain Powell and three senior members of the management team signed up for the Business accelerator programme, the three day course delivered by VitalSix in partnership with the Henley Business School. “The days away got us thinking about our elevator pitch, and about our markets and where we should focus. Some of the things we worked on are things that we are doing now - for example our Target Thames Valley strategy." This was followed up by tailored business and leadership coaching focusing on marketing, sales and corporate governamce

Next steps
Active is focussing on key markets, and is pushing out its refined sales message of breadth of service speed and flexibility.“We now know that our clients value our breadth of services, speed and flexibility. That is what we tell our people to focus on now.” It has  recently appointed a non-executive director to ensure good practises learned from VitalSix remain part of the businesss.

“VitalSix has helped us build a foundation for expansion. It was of huge value to us. It's made us more aligned as a leadership team."
