I am on a mission. My mission is to make workplaces enjoyable places to be.
Why is this important? Well, I believe that if people enjoy being at work then they will be more productive, more motivated, more engaged. And when you harness the power of engaged and motivated people throughout your organisation, amazing things can happen.
Getting the best out of your people makes sound business sense. It’s good for your productivity, it offers a great work environment and ultimately, it drives your revenue and profitability. I firmly believe that engaged people are the foundations on which great businesses are built. And I’m certainly not the only one.
As legendary business leader Jack Welch said, “There are only three measurements that tell you nearly everything you need to know about your organization’s overall performance: employee engagement, customer satisfaction, and cash flow.”
And yet, despite the business benefits, the CIPD’s Spring 2017 Employee Outlook research found that, while 48% of the workforce considered themselves ‘satisfied’ with their jobs, only 12% felt that their organisations did anything to inspire them.
What’s more, only 35% felt their employers paid any attention to the suggestions they made. Both figures are worryingly low, especially with the high expectations of the growing millennial workforce.
I’m passionate about building highly motivated and productive teams in both start-ups and larger organisations - and I’ve got many tips and insights to share from across my career.
