5 tips for unlocking motivation in your remote team + ask the expert Q&A
Thu, Mar 11, 2021 10:00 AM – 10:40 AM GMT
Organisations facing falling motivation levels and increasing numbers of disengaged employees in 2021 may not come as a huge surprise. Last year, 45% of UK businesses reported feeling confused about what goals to prioritise during the pandemic which has had a significant impact on motivation levels and teamwork. Without a motivated, happy workforce productivity and quality of work will falter and leave employees feeling hopeless about work.
Under normal circumstances HR and business leaders could fix this problem by introducing incentives or creating a more stimulating environment to jump-start motivation. But do these old methods for boosting motivation still apply? How can we stay motivated a year into the pandemic with many of us still working at home and isolated from our teams?
This webinar has been designed by industry experts to help MDs and HR leaders unlock and maintain motivation across all levels of their organisation.

Safeguarding employee wellbeing and improving productivity
Thursday 19th November @ 10am
Among the complex challenges CEOs and MDs have faced this year, keeping the workforce safe, happy and productive has been one of the most important – yet hardest to overcome.
Employee anxiety and stress levels have reached an all time high during the pandemic. As a result, staff have been unable to fully apply themselves to their work, causing a drop in productivity plus increased time off for sickness.
All businesses rely on healthy and happy employees to deliver their business strategy. Remote working has made it almost impossible to understand how well your people are coping (or not). This Webinar is aimed at CEOs and MDs who want to level up their wellbeing strategy to enable their people to thrive over the coming weeks and months as we approach the winter.

- Recommendations for change
How managers can use digital tools to improve productivity in remote teams
Thu, Sep 10, 2020 10:00 AM – 10:40 AM BST
Just a few months ago managing a team was infinitely easier – getting everyone together in one room for a coffee or lunch in the local (remember that?). Even in that environment many managers struggled to keep their teams on song – either due to lack of time, skills or data.
The pandemic has compounded these challenges and made line management harder than ever. The impact of this for business is potentially enormous, the double hit of lost productivity and the loss of crucial talent would be devastating to any organisation trying to get back on track as we move into the new world.
This Webinar offers some insights into how digital tools can bridge the gap between the old world and the new one – giving managers the knowledge, skills and resources they need to keep their people happy, focused and productive.The webinar will cover:
- Why remote teams are so hard to manage – what’s really different?
- How to create a culture of listening, learning and doing in remote teams
- Listening – why it is more important now than ever before
- Learning – manager away days are a thing of the past – what are the options
- Accountability – why you need to hold managers accountable for their teams
- A blueprint for managing remote teams using WeThrive

Becoming the employer of choice to attract top talent and retain the best employees
In today’s modern world, ratings have become ubiquitous in how people make life decisions, from holiday reviews on TripAdvisor to choosing our food on Deliveroo and even rating our taxi trips on Uber. We want to know what our peers think.
This phenomena of checking for ratings before making decisions is rapidly evolving in the working world too, with more people than ever scoping out prospective employees on sites such as Glassdoor and indeed.com.
According to a recent study from the CIPD, 75% of organisations have experienced recruitment difficulties in the last year. At a cost of £11,000 to replace the average employee, and, in an increasingly competitive and turbulent marketplace, it is crucial for businesses to attract top talent but also to retain their best employees.
