How a 160-year-old Building Society is Transforming its User-Centred Design

Hosted by Yorkshire Building Society

In 2024 Yorkshire Building Society will be 160 years old. We are the third largest UK Building Society.

Our purpose is helping real life happen, and as a Mutual that means delivering three central ambitions:

• Helping people to have a place called home

• Helping them towards greater financial wellbeing

• Creating long-term value for our members

In this session we will share our journey to User Centred Design in the context of an established Financial Service Organisation delivering a fast paced digital technology Transformation Programme.

You’ll hear from two senior leaders about how they have lead change in their teams and found opportunities to change the conversation in YBS around customer centricity. YBS’ Customer Journey Management, UX Design and Content Design teams will talk about the step changes they’ve been involved in and how that is making a difference in strategy, design practice and ways of working.

As part of the event we will also have a hands-on “science museum” interactive session to share some tools and techniques that we are using to work towards inclusive design.

The event will be held at YBS’ offices in Central Leeds.
