What is the secret to successful engagement of employees? Benefits, pay – or inspiration?

From 2008, deep in a recession that hit the UK workforce hard, employee benefits became a ‘nice to have’ as pay stagnated and people were just glad to be in a secure job role.            

But as with each Budget statement the government has announced a steadily recovering economy, employees have once again been looking to their benefits – and their workplace culture – to act as a differentiator in their career choices.

At the end of 2016, Reward reported that younger generations in the workforce look more for a good benefits package, while in February of this year, research revealed the power of thanks, with 31% of employees saying they would be ‘very unlikely’ to leave a company that regularly shows appreciation for their work (One4All).

So how best to maintain engaged employees and attract new talent? With two employee engagement trademarks – The Experience® and There is more to life than work® – Goodman Masson’s CEO Guy Hayward’s philosophy is all about challenging, engaging and inspiring his employees.

He will be discussing his award-winning approach with the Reward Live audience, revealing how Goodman Masson has successfully delivered year-on-year growth in both revenues and head count.

Guy Hayward will be speaking at Reward Live at 14.15 on Wednesday 10th May, at Edgbaston Cricket Ground, Birmingham. To view the full programme, find out more, and register for your FREE place, CLICK HERE
