A board game designed to add fun to induction training has helped insurer Royal London unite staff following a major acquisition. When Royal London took over United Assurance Group PLC in 2000. The challenge was to unite the two businesses by creating a single corporate culture. Induction training was to play a key part. Keen to avoid the traditional approach, the company asked its new training division, which had been set up at United Assurance's old headquarters in Wilmslow, Cheshire, to come up with a more progressive solution. The game consists of an image of a board game, projected onto an interactive whiteboard. By touching the board, players can spin a pointer to generate a number, reveal questions, match pairs of pictures, or do whatever is required at any stage of the game. INSET: Profile.
