Building communications and culture at Winc

2018 marked the start of our relationship with Winc - a company that exists to inspire millions of people in Australia and New Zealand with new and better ways to work and learn.

Winc products range from office, school, facilities and safety essentials, services like print and marketing, to demonstrating what’s possible with their technology and workspace solutions.


Coming together

Following a major brand refresh in 2017, Winc (formerly Staples) merged with OfficeMax in early 2018 to deliver even more value through more personalised solutions – all in one place.

During a time of significant change, Winc knew the importance of establishing a unified, consistent and transparent approach to communications – for employees, suppliers and customers alike.

Enspire supported Winc through this integral phase, delivering more than just sustainable strategies and engaging activities – we helped Winc create a way of life.
