Igniting performance in your business

 

Team 144 in the Tech sector

Workplace culture and Employee Engagement are significant areas of opportunity for IT and Tech companies.

The industry is synonymous with:

  • High salaries
  • Never ending cycles of pressure (project delivery, month / quarter / year end etc)
  • High average order value and High lifetime customer value

Companies in the sector continually need to attract and retain top talent, protect staff from the risk of burnout and continually stay vigilant to the threat of competitors in major, flagship accounts.

The prevalence of remote working across the industry means that engagement and affiliation to the business is challenging.

The talent crunch and skills shortages means that certain roles are permanently in demand and competitors are constantly looking to encourage team members to leave.

However, despite all these factors, there are endless engagement opportunities for the sector.

Information, Communications and Technology companies remain a desirable industry for many. And some of the most vibrant workplace cultures in the world are in this space.

Driving engagement and high-performance culture in the sector should be a priority.

Team 144 in the Creative sector 

The creative economy accounts for approximately 3m jobs in the UK.

Despite being an industry that so many feel compelled to work in, it suffers far higher rates of staff turnover than some of the more formal industries.

This staff churn is driven partly by the ‘careerists’, who stay in roles for short periods and make quick moves to secure promotions, and partly by the rising convenience of self-employment and freelancing.

Competition for staff is rife and with so many viable competitors in every city or town, this makes retention a significant headache for business owners.

This ability to move jobs has created stronger and clearer demands from many employees in the sector. They want:  

  • a vibrant workplace (in terms of people and environment)
  • exciting and challenging work which inspires innovation and creativity

Whilst not unique to the creative industries, the continual squeeze and demands from clients is pronounced. Client expectations are constantly rising – each year further pushes their demands for cheaper, better, faster.

But it is far from all doom and gloom. The creative industries will always be an exciting, dynamic and passion filled arena.

The opportunity to meet these client and staff demands can be supported by workplace culture and employee engagement.

Some examples of the tailored services we provide for creative businesses are:

  • Workshops, training & seminars
  • Culture and engagement strategy and consultancy
  • Business assessments to benchmark your business in 12 core areas directly linked to high performance
  • Individuals assessments to help you hire, develop and retain the best people.
  • Creative cultural initiatives
