Leap London: Santander, Merck, JLL, ICON, and Refinitiv Take Home Lion Awards Accenture Interactive and Ethos named Workfront ‘Partners of the Year’
Workfront Recognises Customer and Partner Achievements in Modern Work Management
Today Workfront announced the 2019 Lion Award winners at our Leap user conference in London. During the conference party, Workfront CEO Alex Shootman and Vice President EMEA Simon Griggs presented Lion Awards to customers who deserve both recognition and congratulations for their pioneering approach to modern work management.
The businesses recognised today, along with the winners announced in May at Leap in Dallas, are setting the benchmark for helping teams be more productive and effective, helping companies thrive, and helping people across enterprise organisations get their best work done. These businesses have brought the “future of work” into the present.
Workfront Rising Star
Santander UK has been awarded the Workfront Rising Star award, which recognises companies that have achieved significant results within their first year of implementation. Santander is committed to operational and digital excellence across the business, and the team brought Workfront in to achieve its marketing 4.0 initiative. It took just seven weeks to complete the Workfront implementation and achieved 92% utilisation within the first week of launch. Since then Workfront has been adopted by several of Santander’s marketing groups — from planning to comms, events to sustainability — who use it to work more efficiently, increase collaboration and visibility, and achieve cost savings across the business.
Workfront Change Leader
Merck has been awarded the Workfront Change Leader award, recognising organisations that have significantly transformed their work culture and created an environment where employees love their jobs. Merck’s in-house consulting group delivers internal services for process- and change-management across the globe from Darmstadt, Boston, and Singapore. The rapidly expanding, globally dispersed team required a platform that would enable them to work collaboratively and efficiently, regardless of time zone. With Workfront, the team and the wider business have one single source of truth for the critical work they are doing around the world.
Workfront Optimisation Expert
JLL has been awarded the Workfront Optimisation award, recognising organisations that have implemented and optimised their solution to enable exceptional business results and ROI. As a world leader in real estate services, operating across multiple industries, JLL had the challenge of connecting disparate systems and processes, scaling the volume of work across teams and departments, and effectively collaborating between teams and across geographies. The business adopted Workfront as their operational system of record (OSR) — orchestrating technology change across the enterprise to deliver better products faster, with transparent performance and greater collaboration.
ICON has been awarded the Workfront Innovator award, recognising organisations that are blazing new trails at the intersection of technology and modern work management for their company, or their industry. ICON strives to accelerate the development of drugs and devices that save lives and improve the quality of life. They use Workfront to support these efforts, driving workplace and work process innovation through digital transformation.
Refinitiv has been awarded the Workfront Visionary award, recognising firms that are leading digital transformation in their organisations and across their industries. Refinitiv transformed their Workfront instance to create a more agile approach to work that helps them bring products and services to market more profitably, efficiently, and with better quality than ever before. Refinitiv enables the financial community to trade smarter and faster, overcome regulatory challenges, and scale intelligently. Now, they’re building an enterprise operational system of record (OSR) to help them do the same, changing the way work gets done across the entire organisation.
Workfront also recognised two partners for their contribution to Workfront and their role in enabling customers to achieve their modern work management goals. The Workfront Partner of the Year award winners include:
