29 data-driven ways to improve employee morale

If you own or operate a small business, you probably enjoy being your own boss.

One of the reasons why HR continues to be viewed as admin jockeys is the lack of meaningful data.

And an anecdote I came across captures this best.

2019 Predictions on Employee Engagement

Did you know that the concept of ‘Employee Engagement’ is almost 30 years old?

The first formal definition was provided by William Kahn, as “the harnessing of organisation members’ selves to their work roles; in engagement, people employ and express themselves physically, cognitively, and emotionally during role performances.”

When HR leaders talk about “employee engagement programmes”, this could mean anything from a survey done every year, to a revamped flexi-benefits programme, to regular townhalls and fireside chats, to team-building activities, staff lunches and annual dinner & dances.

Interview with Co-Founder & Director at AGHRM

I have known Steve for more than 10 years.

We were both BNI members of Gateway chapter and I clearly recall that was before my 10 year old son.

He surprised me at first when I learned he is a sales person given his quiet demeanour.

But once you know him better, his blend of technical knowledge and sharpened solutioning skills make him the kind of consultative sales people you enjoy speaking with and learn from.
