Staff engagement: two steps to create change

Before pressing print on your switch-off campaign posters or sending out details of your new staff competition, there are a few things you need to know about when it comes to human behavior that will help you design and implement the most effective staff engagement activities within your organisation.

  • How to talk to staff and understand their drivers
  • Engagement resources and tools to help get people on board.

  • The sad but true story of green teams – from excitement to extinction
  • What gives a green team purpose?
