Employee engagement shouldn’t begin and end with a Christmas drink

The essence of a good company is having good people; support your people and they will support you.

How many times have you heard a Company Director say “our people are our most important asset” yet if they treated their customers the same way they treated their employees, some wouldn’t have any customers left.

Many are put off engaging with their employees, fearful of what they may hear and fearful of the cost of making things better yet remain blind to the cost to their business of doing nothing.

Successfully engaging with your employees doesn’t have to be expensive and it can make a positive difference to your bottom line.

You don’t have to be a Neville Wilshire of Save Britain Money and larger than life CEO of the BBC Call Centre fly on the wall series; or a Mark Adlestone company ambassador of Beaverbrooks, whose company is an ever present in the Sunday Times Best companies to work for list. Neither do you have to work for a global business like P&G who provide an engaging employee culture based on Principles, Values and Purpose.

And it doesn’t have to be complicated…

How often do your employees hear your appreciation for what they have done?
How are they encouraged and motivated to give their best each day?
How often do you ask for their opinion?
How do you provide a culture that encourages and enables them to reach their individual potential?

The essence of a good company is having good people; support your people and they will support you.

Improving the performance of your people, the profitability of your products and the productivity of your process.
