We began working with Balfour Beatty in 1996. Their business
has grown significantly since then, and so has our relationship
with them. Today we help Balfour Beatty tell their story in
everything from corporate brochures to codes of conduct, and
sustainability reports to shareholder communications.
What did we do?
Balfour Beatty Group trusts us to inform and inspire their
shareholders, customers and all 53,000 staff around the world. This

Firstly there's a short film we made that explains who they are,
what they do and what they stand for. Created against the clock, it
was first aired as the opener and scene setter at Balfour Beatty's
2010 AGM, and now plays continuously in the reception of their
offices around the world.
Next, sustainability reports. To make sure the 2010 report
really connected with Balfour Beatty's business strategy, we kicked
off the development process with a workshop involving senior
managers and in-house sustainability practitioners. This helped us
build consensus and made the report more meaningful. The result was
"Highly Commended" in the Building Public Trust Awards sponsored by
PwC, and described as "a transparent and highly readable account of
issues impacting the business."
Finally, there's our group-wide programme of employee
engagement, designed to promote a single set of values across the
entire organisation. Far from being just a "nice to have", this
ambitious project was designed to help all Balfour Beatty's
operating companies work together to deliver large, multi-million
pound schemes - an example of values delivering hard ROI as well as
soft benefits. Feedback has been extremely positive, with the
programme acting as a catalyst for cultural change across the whole
