No 21: Unlocking employee engagement & motivation in your business
The MacLeod Review prepared for the UK government and titled “Engaging for Success – enhancing performance through employee engagement” suggested that the cost to UK plc of disengagement of employees is between £59.4bn and £64.7bn a year.

Engagement strategies enable people to be the best they can be at work leading to increased performance, productivity and profitability. But this can only happen if they feel involved, well-led and valued by those they work for. Developing the right attitudes, behaviours and outcomes are intrinsic to employee motivation and engagement.

Drawing on the MacLeod Review, this introductory session will explore:
  • the performance triangle of direction, motivation and skills
  • the two way relationship between employee and employer
  • intrinsic values and the employee’s awareness of the business context
  • creating a “wanting” not just a “having” to come to work
  • effective reward and appraisal systems linked to motivation
  • how to nurture an environment where employees are motivated to connect with and care about their work
The event speaker Steve Jones is a well-known business coach, public speaker, trainer and consultant and he will help attendees to get a more detailed understanding of motivation and how it can help both the organisation and individuals. Steve has worked with SMEs, corporate organisations and public sector bodies. He is a NLP Master Trainer, a Motivational Maps Master Practitioner and has recently been assisting the Government's Employee Engagement Task Force in the areas of motivation and performance improvement.

  • Managing strategic change in a growing manufacturing business
  • Best practice planning for successful selection and implementation of an ERP system
  • Highs and lows of the journey
  • Lessons learnt along the way
Stuart Yalden, Managing Director of precision manufacturers GW Martin & Co Ltd, and Martin White, Director of business systems consultancy Thinkers Ltd, jointly present a case study describing the transformation which GW Martin have undergone over the past four years. The journey has been difficult in places, but the results are highly worthwhile. Stuart and Martin will discuss the highs and lows of the journey and share with delegates the lessons they have learnt on the way.

Stuart will explain how key elements of a new strategy enabled GW Martin to build on their traditional manufacturing past to win and deliver a raft of new products for a major new customer. Implementing their first ERP system with specialist consultancy Thinkers was one of the foundations for this. Martin will share best practice on how they choose an ERP system appropriate to the business’s future strategy, and on the challenges of implementing it to replace an almost entirely manual process.

GW Martin now use their ERP system for all aspects of their business, including CRM, purchasing, production control, shop-floor data capture, traceability, sub-contract management, quality, stock control and accounts.
