If you improve motivation and staff engagement, your business is likely to grow. And your staff will also grow, in terms of personal and professional development.
We want to support you in your business growth by helping you improve staff motivation, engagement, and retention.
An engaged workforce is a productive workforce.
Employee engagement involves understanding what motivates individuals and teams, and rewarding them based on their motivations. If you get it right, you develop an inspirational culture, you keep your staff for longer, and you naturally attract people to come and work for you.
How Blues Point can help
We give you the tools to engage your current teams and individuals, using assessments, feedback, and training. You will improve understanding, increase focus, and minimise conflict.
- We conduct a discussion with leadership staff to establish or reaffirm company values, and the behaviours that match.
- We use the Thomas Engage corporate assessment tool, which enables you to establish the levels of engagement within an organisation and identifies actions for making necessary improvements.
Thomas Engage is an online survey that measures your organisation’s Workplace Engagement and helps you to leverage the benefits of a truly engaged workforce. Its practical, solutions-led approach facilitates the provocative thoughts and critical conversations required to effect long-term, sustainable engagement and consequently deliver potential benefits such as higher productivity, improved staff commitment, better wellbeing and increased revenues and profits.
Thomas Engage measures Workplace Engagement: how people think and feel about the work they do, the people they work with and the company they work for. It identifies different areas of strength and vulnerability such as teams, departments or regions that are engaged and those that may be struggling and need support. It benchmarks organisations against others and recommends actions you can implement towards sustainable change and development.
Engage was designed by Mark Slaski following five years of extensive academic research into Workplace Engagement. Built from the sound scientific theories of the psychology of groups, Engage measures the seven key factors that drive Workplace Engagement:
The research, with over 150 organisational groups, shows that companies who score high in workplace engagement also score significantly higher in wellbeing, commitment and performance.
Thomas Engage enables your company to run a 'health check' and provides a 3-D map of engagement in your organisation. It is easy to use and delivers a quick turnaround for results. Most importantly, it provides invaluable information enabling management teams to create effective and sustainable change.
Use Thomas Engage to identify:
- Areas of strength and vulnerability
- Comparative levels of engagement across groups/segments in your organisation
- A company benchmark against other UK organisations
- Your company’s level of wellbeing
- Management styles operating within your organisation
- Effective and sustainable change to improve performance across your business
