The Wellcome Trust is a global charitable foundation dedicated to achieving extraordinary improvements in human and animal health. It supports the brightest minds in biomedical research and the medical humanities. A Wellcome Trust employee survey highlighted two areas of concern. Firstly, a limited career progression in the Trust in terms of moving into senior management roles, and secondly a lack of sharing experiences.
Our challenge was to build an effective programme designed to engage current Wellcome Trust employees and alumni, support the ‘digital first’ strategy, promote the concept of a ‘relationship for life’ and demonstrate the part Wellcome Trust played in alumni’s careers.
