“At Unimutual, we used the MVM process to identify the mutual value that we are creating for our members. The leadership team had the opportunity to sit down and identify what our member’s value. The six dimensions gave us a structure to look at how that value is created. Working with Mutuo, we’ve embodied MVM as part of our strategic performance framework and identified the key measures that we want to consider on an ongoing basis.”

Geoff Henderson, Chief Executive Officer, Unimutual
