Client: Banking client
Solution: Sensory Intelligence® - improving team productivity
Our South African Banking Client has ±4000 employees, occupying a high-rise building in Pretoria, South Africa. They have a strong culture of learning and development and always looking for innovative ways to improve the productivity and wellbeing of their staff.
A dynamic and comprehensive training and staff development plan was planned for 2018. They contacted Sensory Intelligence® Consulting to assist with open plan office productivity within their Learning and Development team in order to roll it out to the rest of the business.
Sensory Intelligence® Consulting delivered the following intervention journey:
A post-intervention survey was performed to measure impact and results.
We measured 9 team KPI’s to determine the impact of the intervention ±6 weeks post intervention. No other interventions were included in their learning journey at the time.
The 9 components overall showed a collective increase of 143% meaning the intervention was successful and improved team productivity.
The 9 KPI’s were: 1) Self-awareness, 2) Stress management, 3) Managing distractions, 4) Team awareness, 5) Team respect, 6) Team communication, 7) Team conflict management, 8) Team open plan office conduct and 9) Team productivity.
“We have seen a significant change in productivity in our teams. There is more respect and better communication within the teams. Staff are more self-aware, they manage their own time and distractions better. Their approach to self management, productivity and wellness has shifted. In my opinion, the Sensory Intelligence® intervention has been highly successful and we are planning to roll this out to more
teams in our organisation.”

Dear Annemarie. My colleague at USB-ED introduced me to your book, Sensory Intelligence®. I read it tonight. I wanted to personally thank you for releasing this book. 5 years ago, I discovered that I am sensory sensitive. Since then I have not been able to gather proper information regarding the subject for better understanding. And then I started reading your book… It is the best book with the most valuable information I have ever come across as a human being. Throughout my life, I have been classified as over-sensitive and people have often taunted me for reacting differently to sensory stimuli. And all it was, is what you classify as “sensitive/defensive”. Thank you for your book’s accuracy. Not only did it help me understand myself even better, but also to understand other people and their levels of sensory tolerance/intolerance.
