How does your work environment affect your productivity?

Maybe you need a social area, to relax in and catch up […]
Are these interview questions alienating your perfect candidates?
What’s the strangest question you’ve ever been asked in an interview? I was once asked: ‘If you could be any animal, what would you be – and why?’ I imagine the reaction to this type of question is a mixed bag. I immediately blurted ‘TURTLE’ (I’m not sure what this says about me…I answered this […]

The Universal Themes of Engagement (i.e. the stuff we agree on!)
In case you haven’t noticed it’s getting very close to election day in the UK. Don’t worry, I’m not going to get into a big political debate here but… what I have noticed in the run up to 8th of June (being a positive psychologist) is the way we often focus on the differences in […]
What’s the point of employee engagement?
Some years ago I worked for a company that had an issue with absenteeism. People were off sick all the time, and it was costing the company a lot of money, not to mention the impact on customer service and general morale around the office… So what was the company’s (well meaning) solution to this […]
