Encouraging RBS employees to think outside the bank

Words are easy to say and harder to make employees believe. Belief starts to build when employee sees those words shaping the environment and processes around them. Through storytelling, visual expression and digital tools, we helped RBS Group focus on customer value.

98% awareness of the new values in six months

Visual Identity

We articulated language and messaging; and created the identity for Think outside the bank.

A dedicated hub provided the starting point for conversations among employees.
