How well do you know and understand what motivates and demotivates each person in your business? Are you sometimes aware that a part of your organisation is not functioning as well as it might, but you can’t quite put your finger on why? Welcome to the issue faced by all company owners and managers at some point.
Knowing the real landscape within an organisation often reveals areas of concern or dissatisfaction that are easy to put right. But first you have to find out!”
Some indicators may help to identify that there is a problem, even if they don’t highlight the exact cause of the problem. For instance, perhaps your company is suffering from poor staff retention, or a lack of communication up and down your team with very little feedback. Maybe it’s lower than expected sales or profits? Or a higher than usual sickness rate? How about an unexpected change of behaviour from an individual or even a whole team?
Is the business as supportive, nurturing, empowering and inclusive as you wish it to be? Or in reality do you suspect that some of your team find it a totally different experience?
As a business owner or manager, it’s a challenge to really understand what’s going on in the minds of your staff. That’s why the JRL Business Sensing service is so valuable. We integrate into the business to understand what it’s like as an employee working within the company, and find out the prevailing climate and culture.
The primary focus of the programme is simply to discover what your employees think of you and your business, and then to recommend some solutions to any issues we uncover. The result is always greater harmony and commitment.
We meet with each employee individually, on a strictly confidential 1-2-1 basis, and establish what they like about their job, what it’s like to work for you, and what needs to happen to support them to improve their performance in a way that would result in more fulfilment, commitment and a desire to further improve their performance and productivity. At the end of the meeting, we provide a clear report that sets out exactly what your team thinks. The report will provide you with specific areas (including verbatim comments) on which you can focus to make your business a better place to work. The key to success is anonymity.
Businesses achieve results through motivated teams who are prepared to commit to excellence. JRL’s Business Sensing programme gives you the information you need to make a difference in the work place, allowing you to remove barriers that interfere with performance, improve the working environment for your team, and increase profitability.
