Insight Sessions
The Cost of Living Crisis

With the cost-of-living crisis set to deepen in 2023, how are organisations responding and supporting their employees, whilst prices continue to rise, and recession looms.

The Power of Listening

Our data demonstrates that employees lose trust in the leadership skills of their senior management team when they do more telling than listening. In this session we explore what organisations are doing to really listen to their people and the confidence they are building as a result.

Breaking Down Silos

Operating in silos can create poor relationships between teams, negatively impacting workplace cohesion and as a result, employee engagement. How are leaders breaking down these silos and creating a strong collective vision for the whole organisation.

Managing Uncertainty

As the economic outlook worsens, it’s more important than ever that managers create a sense of certainty within their teams. How are the best managers navigating these uncertain times and creating clarity for their people.

Who is Bucking the Trend?

In such challenging times, which organisations are excelling with their engagement strategies, and how exactly are they doing it.
