LLOYD’S REGISTER WINS BQF AWARD

We were delighted to hear that one of our jam clients, Lloyd’s Register, has been awarded the British Quality Foundation’s Achievement Award for Employee Engagement for its GET Smart Improvement (foundation) programme – part of its Global Energy Transformation (GET). We think their story is a great example of using the wisdom of the crowd to effect change in an organisation.

The GET Smart programme was part of a re-structure that moved Lloyd’s Register from a regional matrix to a global structure organised along service lines. The team at Lloyd’s Register decided that the best way to make the change work was to harness the wisdom of their crowd by getting as many people involved as possible. More

INTERVIEW: FIVE STEPS TO EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT EXCELLENCE

Our Editor interviews Keith Dalton, Head of Business Development at the Hot Spots Movement, to find out what it takes to build a truly great employee engagement programme.

HSM: Let’s start with the challenges – what do you think is missing from employee engagement programmes in general?

KD: I think there is often a lack of knowledge about what engages people – and what disengages them. Engagement is one of our key areas of research so we know, for example, that people are immediately more engaged if they feel they are involved in a process where they know that what they have to say will have some impact.

WHO’S IN OUR NETWORK? – RAINA BRANDS

This month’s Hot Spots friend is London Business School academic Raina Brands. Raina is an assistant professor of organisational behaviour at London Business School, who has done some great work on issues such as how the language of gender bias is used in the workplace and how women's careers and reputations are helped and hindered by informal social networks of friendship and advice. Her most recent area of focus is the fast developing science of network structures, particularly the impact informal networks have on the likelihood of change happening across a corporation. Lynda is a big fan of Raina’s work and we’re grateful to be able to drawn on her perspective in the course of our collaboration research.
