What our clients and partners say
Head of Global Demo Engineering, Cisco
Having worked with the Corporate Spring team over the last years, I have first-hand experienced the amazing effect of what they do and how they do it. By combining theory, experience and neuroscience with excellent facilitation skills, they have trained, inspired and provided tremendous value to our 350 people global team. Their work has led to higher levels of belonging, trust and engagement, more innovation, collaboration and better performance across the team. The return of this investment has been phenomenal.
CEO, Kyoto Group
The Corporate Spring Model, and the people behind, puts deep knowledge, structure and processes into the not-so-tangible process of building, and continuously evolving, a corporate culture. Without constantly securing those building blocks, a company will not survive long in today´s fast-changing value-driven world. We are privileged and grateful for the opportunity to be guided by Corporate Spring on this exciting journey to form a culture where people can thrive and thereby deliver on our purpose back to society; we are following the process mindfully and can clearly experience the impact in the organization.
VP People & Development, Pexip
Corporate Spring was instrumental in our process of defining a common culture and values for the combined company this spring and help us focus on what matters the most in order to create a high performing global team. The presentation Annicken R. Day and Mikael Hansson held on our kick-off, about the importance of corporate culture, was extremely well received and created a lot of excitement and enthusiasm. We are really grateful for the excellent work and can highly recommend Corporate Spring for this type of work.
Chief Executive Officer & Founder
Corporate Spring’s inspiration and insights have driven us to a greater level. We are proud to be one of the most admired companies in our sector with employee ratings that are off the charts. Thank you for all you have done to improve corporate culture around the world!
You want your coaches to make an immediate impact on you and your team, and no one does this more than Annicken. She is by far the best “culture expert” I have ever come across both as a subject matter expert and her ability to facilitate implementation. Her impressive background, combined with her uniquely energetic personality and “no b.s” attitude, was the reason we chose to engage Corporate Spring to work on our own organization, and now gladly recommended them to all of our clients.
CEO Open Bank, DNB
The effect of the work Corporate Spring did with the digital business unit at DNB has by far exceeded our expectations. The digital teams work more effectively together, are more inspired and energized than ever, and demonstrate greater flexibility and willingness to change. We would never have achieved this level of engagement and shift in mindsets and motivation without the help of Corporate Spring.
