Posted Leave a commentPosted in Teams

Baby Boomers vs. millennials. You know the drill. It is a debate that never seems to end with impassioned arguments loaded and ready to be fired from each side. This generation divide has become something that is so obvious and transparent in the workplace. But have we ever stopped to think about the damage that this constant ‘us versus them’ dialogue can have within teams trying to operate at their best every day? With workplaces undergoing digital change, it only […]

A company cannot thrive without its people and culture. It is as simple as that. With technological anxieties and fears of automation, it has become unwittingly easier to lose focus on developing people and culture. If this type of thinking becomes normalised, you will lose what made your company, your business, your brand so great in the first place. The people and culture behind it. So how do we keep our people engaged? To keep bringing innovation, agility and collaboration […]

We enjoyed some snacks, refreshments and pizza (of course) and everyone was encouraged to write down their […]

3 ways to incentivise Millennials

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Employee Experience

We see endless rhetoric about how Millennials are different – from the way they work, the way they have fun and they way they use technology to do both at a faster rate than most senior staff members.
