We’re seeing the workplace change more rapidly than ever before. The introduction of flexible working hours for employees, as well as the possibility of remote working for all, has given the corporate world the freedom to completely redesign the concept of a traditional working week.
Studies have been conducted which finally provide the insights we need to create a more efficient, happier workforce. This new data enables us as business leaders to go beyond well-meaning staff surveys, team events and policies, to discovering the true formula to successful team and people management. It gives us the opportunity to transform an organisation, from the top down, for the benefit of all.
Which is why, we have been busy behind the scenes researching the people who are working hard to transform the way we view business management in this decade.
Take Chris Brindley from Metro Bank, Chris was previously awarded the title of ‘Britain’s Best Boss’. He and his team took a bleak situation during the last recession and turned it into an incredible opportunity; creating a financial institution which single-handedly changed the face of retail banking. Passionate about discovering talent in people and nurturing it in sport or business, Chris speaks at seminars across the UK, showing how a few simple, yet effective, tools can radically transform businesses, of all sizes and in all industries, with employee wellbeing and business success standing side by side.
Practising doctor, and world renowned author, Dr John Briffa, strongly believes that it’s a reality of corporate life that many individuals can feel depleted by traditional work practices, leading to negative results for performance, engagement and sustainability; he’s been devoting his time to teaching easy to implement strategies which can vastly improve employee wellness, as well as result in higher profitability, increased employee engagement and overall happiness across an organisation.
And Dr Nicola J. Millard, Head of Customer Insight & Futures with the BT Global Services Innovation Team; Nicola, combines psychology with futurology to determine future trends for customers and organisations.
