Bringing values to life at Treïs

“You don’t need a big People function or to pay huge amounts to business schools to do high quality leadership and team development.” says Tanya Lightbody, Group People and Performance Director at Treïs.

“Working with CharacterScope got great results through a combination of our own implementation, their digital tool and support from their expert team.”

Treïs Group – Moving Beyond Insights

Treïs is a family-owned investment group specialising in responsible and sustainable investment with positive economic and social impact.

“We are very much a values driven organisation. We wanted to further embed our values by building behaviours to help our team live those values in our day-to-day work”.

“Our team of professional staff had previously used MBTI and Hogan to generate personal insights and we had a clear sense that we needed to move beyond insights to development.”

The Solution

“We looked for an approach that was effective and technically sophisticated but not too complex for us to implement. We wanted our teams in London, Luxembourg and Singapore to be developing simultaneously.”

“CharacterScope offered a unique approach of a tool that we could deploy across 3 offices combined with support from their expert team. The depth of data behind CharacterScope combined with deep psychology expertise gave us great confidence and got even sceptical participants on board. Accessing both insights and personal development through a very 21st century app really helped engagement.”

Partnering on Development

Treïs and CharacterScope partnered on implementation, co-running introductory workshops then moving on to using the digital tool.

“The response was very positive. People really liked the tool, were engaged by it and intrigued by CharacterScope’s insights. “

“Utilising a strengths based approach helped get us beyond a perception that we all need to be perfect at everything, to productive development for individuals. Having got our teams engaged and seen benefits in bringing our values to life, we can see so many more ways to keep working with CharacterScope to sustain the benefits and keep making a difference to our day to day work.”
