“This partnership has opened up a lot of creative room to challenge ourselves and get better at what we can do with our talent groups.”

Sarah Siddique, Regional Head of Talent, Learning and Development, Arcadis

The Challenge

Arcadis wanted an adaptive and innovative approach to inspire its current and future change-makers to bring their best ideas and expertise to clients, facilitate knowledge transfer, and share best practices.

Focusing on its workforce in the Middle East, the company wanted to co-create a flexible learning program that brought together regional leadership expertize using a range of learning formats and presented participants with many dynamics.

Arcadis needed a partner who understood their language, could effectively measure their regional evolution, and design a program capable of tackling the challenges in the competitive Middle Eastern market.

In this case study, we explore how the program has transformed the professional landscape for Arcadis through innovative and enhanced knowledge sharing across the region.

Encouraging innovative knowledge sharing through blended learning

Our impact

The blended learning program included two groups – emerging leaders with 3-8 years’ experience, and advanced learners with 8-12 years’ experience – that combined to form one program, with separate project work to reflect the stage they were at in their individual career and development. The project themes included: Delivering Sustainable Growth, Creating Leadership Legacies, and Leveraging Arcadis’ Values. The project output so far has been incredibly positive, with participants connecting their work to other areas of the business. The blended approach has encouraged Arcadis to be more innovative and enhance knowledge sharing across the region, piloting different technologies to enable this. Delivered online by Hult EF faculty through monthly masterclasses and the Leadership Live learning portal, the program is also supported by face-to-face action learning sets, which enable participants to directly apply their program learnings to real-business scenarios. The presence of the Arcadis CEO and senior leaders at times within the program provided a statement of the program’s organizational significance.

Long-term business value

A blended, bite-sized learning approach has created incremental gains that deliver sustained business results over time.

A solid partnership

Given its current success, Arcadis wants to continue collaborating with Hult EF to ensure the program remains innovative, practical, and relevant.

Taking regional success global

Arcadis aims to use the scalability of the program to reach more employees, by developing the program to support global mobility.
