Increasing Employee Engagement & Motivation
24th May 2016
24 May - our third workshop of the year in our third year of workshops - so quite a milestone!
Our topic for today 'Increasing Employee Engagement & Motivation' - the event was once again held at MyHotel and as always they didn't disappoint. There are many event venues in Brighton but we have always found the service and hospitality at MyHotel to be one of the best and our room even had a Brighton Festival twist!
Jonathan Richards from Breathehr began by discussing the 4 main ingredients of a happier, more motivated and more productive workforce;
- leaders with a vision who value how individuals contribute
- line managers who emplower rather than control their staff
- values that are lived and not just spoken, leading to a sense of trust and integrity
- employees who have the chance to voice their views and concerns
He then went on to discuss the importance of a company's culture, their DNA, and this generated some discussion from the audience as to whether culture can be copied or whether it has to be individual to the company and of course it was confirmed that a company's DNA is individual and what works for somebody else may not necessarily work for you, even if in the same sector.
Paul Feist then went on to discuss EMI Schemes - Enterprise Management Incentive Schemes and how these tax effiicent schemes can help engage and motivate employees when used appropriately.
Jonathan also mentioned some great books that may help you understand how to engage and motivate your employees in your company;
- The Five Dysfunctions of a Team: Patrick Lencioni
- Time to Think: Nancy Kline
