Think about the last time you experienced poor customer service. Chances are your experience was far more about the attitude and behaviour of the individual than their lack of skill or knowledge. That’s why we put motivation and energy at the heart of employee engagement.

Truly engaged employees care about what they do. That’s because they are energised by your organisation and their role within it. It makes them want to deliver great service, pay attention to quality and bring new ideas. It also makes them great advocates for your business and ambassadors for your brand.

By contrast, lack of energy and motivation often translates into “I don’t care” – what we often describe as the “Lauren principle”. We see it reflected in people who have the skills and knowledge to do a great job but who choose instead to behave in unhelpful and even destructive ways. If you can harness all that unfilled potential it could transform your business.

For Chiumento, employee engagement is about much more than communications or satisfaction surveys. It is about creating a culture and environment which unlocks the maximum contribution from every individual.

To be motivated and perform to their full potential, individuals need to be in the right job – and the right culture. That’s why we see really strong links with career management. Managers and leaders who understand what matters most to their people – and it often isn’t money – are frequently the most successful in driving organisational performance. They realise that things like relationships, trust and values can be critical to employee engagement.

Getting employee engagement right can have a huge impact on organisational performance. Research shows that engaged employees take less sick leave and are far more likely to recommend their employer’s goods or services to their family and friends. They also care much more about what your customers want.

Building high performance cultures

Energising your team to deliver success.  High performance cultures depend on energised people. We help organisations understand what motivates their people using our own research-based model. We then use that insight to help clients shape their engagement strategy.

We also help organisations work with their people to define the values and behaviours that are essential to their success. This includes helping new teams establish effective ways of working as well as supporting teams emerging from major organisational change.

Employee communications

Let’s get talking!  Chiumento can help you develop a sustainable and impactful communication programme that ensures your employees understand the organisation, its goals and their part in achieving success. This includes creating the critical pathways that allow your team to share their triumphs, concerns and ideas with the senior leadership team.

We work with leadership teams to establish a clear strategic narrative that keeps every manager “on message” – ensuring the consistency and clarity of message essential to building trust. We use multiple communication tools from traditional newsletters and briefing sessions to internet and mobile technologies to ensure the right messages get to the right places at the right time. Each delivered in a style and language that matches the DNA of your business.

And we never forget that the most important communications are often between two individuals – manager and employee. That’s why we offer extensive communication training support that equips managers with the skills and resilience to deliver complex and challenging messages.
