Xpand Wins Sweet Development Contract Image

We’re happy to announce that we have recently won a substantial web development contract with the UK arm of international chocolatiers, Lindt & Sprungli.

The project will see us develop a new online career pathways intranet system to help Lindt retain personnel and help staff to create their own career path, with a view to rolling the project out to Lindt operations globally, including the USA and South Africa.Xpand posing with Lindt Golden Bunny promotional cars

The opportunity arose via one of our community initiatives, the JCI Bradford Easter egg appeal, through which Easter eggs were collected for disadvantaged children in the region. This brought Xpand to Lindt’s attention via social media and led to a teleconference to discuss the opportunity.

A few short months later, we were sat at Lindt & Sprungli UK HQ, planning the project while surrounded by an array of chocolate bars and bunnies (and some pretty cool bunny cars!).

Jenny Lawrence, HR Director at Lindt & Sprungli UK, said: “We’re excited to be working with Xpand on this crucial project. When delivered, it will allow us to give our staff the information they need to build the career they want and improve our already high staff retention rates. After meeting with the Xpand team in May, we were confident that they were the right partner to choose to work on this project.”
