It’s a real honour to be a guru and help Engage for Success spread the word about employee engagement.

Engage for Success was launched to help UK industry get to grips with employee engagement and to encourage economic growth by releasing more of the capability and potential of our nation’s labour force. The organisation has already won support from the Prime Minister, David Cameron, and is building momentum for its employee engagement principles by organising networking and awareness events across the country.

Gary and Jaime have over 10 years’ experience of conducting employee research from running employee surveys and workshops to 360-degree feedback and one-to-one facilitation. They are highly-skilled at helping big brands and SMEs identify the main drivers for employee engagement. The pair also helps management teams employ new strategies to create better ways of working to improve productivity and wellbeing in the workplace.

Gary Cattermole believes business can gain a real financial benefit from creating environments whereby employees become truly engaged in their work and thrive. He says: “It’s a real honour to be a guru and help Engage for Success spread the word about employee engagement. In a time of recession, management often overlook their biggest asset – their people – which is a shame as this is often a time when their staff are working harder than ever before. Managers frequently think they have to spend thousands on developing and employing effective employee engagement strategies, but often it’s the little things that count, such as simply saying ‘thank you’ to staff and ensuring staff feel appreciated for the work they do."

He continued: “It’s vital that companies, large or small, work with their staff and recognise talent to keep everyone motivated. By benchmarking performance, and undertaking employee feedback surveys, businesses can identify areas they need to improve to ensure their staff are working at optimum levels. Simple management techniques can really help lift an organisation’s morale and productivity levels with a highly engaged workforce.”

The Survey Initiative enjoys long-standing relationships with their clients, which include, Telegraph Media Group, AVEVA, Rolls Royce, EPSON, NHS, Mouchel, Axa, Accor, John Lewis and the Natural History Museum.

The Survey Initiative is passionate about people and the planet and is proud to be carbon neutral.
