About this event

If you employ people, or you’re considering employing, and you want a quick insight into how to motivate and retain your staff, then this bite-sized webinar is for you.

Whether you make a product, sell a service… or do both… people are at the heart of what you do. And with the current labour pool shortage, there has never been a better time to focus on making your workplace the best it can be.

But how do you motivate teams or individuals, so they’re happy, feel productive and want to stay?

This 1-hour webinar session gives you a quick overview of why employees can become demotivated, and looks at some of the key ways in which we can inspire our teams, improve productivity, and ultimately retain our team so our business can grow.

Suitable for a variety of industries, mature and start up companies, the webinar will also delve into what other companies are doing to increase staff retention rates, and explore some of the common reasons why staff become demotivated.

At the end of the webinar, you will:

• Have the tools to understand how motivated your current workforce are

• Know what steps you might want to take to improve

• Know how to improve staff retention through flexible benefits

• Understand how to assess and manage employee motivation in the future

Who should attend?

Business Owners, Directors and Managers working for an established SME. You may already have an issue with staff motivation, or you wish to prepare for future challenges.

Business owners from start up companies who are considering employing staff are also welcome.

The webinar will be delivered by Edward Ryder from Biskit Ltd.

Edward has over 25 years of business experience, and currently provides consultancy support to multiple high growth engineering, e-commerce and manufacturing companies across the UK.
