Want to grow productivity? Just ask and, more importantly, listen to your team.

Do you really know what your employees are thinking?

Do you really want to know!

I started my business Redwood Ellis after it dawned on me whilst reflecting on my 35-year career with British Airways, Local Authorities, Charities and large event teams' that no one asked me how I was and how could we do things more efficiently or be more productive…and I had loads of ideas!

If I’d been asked 2 simple questions regularly .

  1. How’s it going with you?

  2. Any ideas on how we can make working here more productive / efficient / better in any way!

I think my working life would have been, at times, less of a treadmill.

But no one asked, and more importantly, really listened to me.

I’ve been working with three businesses for nearly 2 years. Every 6 months I coach the majority of the team, send an (anonymous) employee engagement survey and report back to SMT.

The information gathered from this process through COVID, a merger and recent Hybrid trials has been invaluable. It has helped shape the team, find pinch points to improve productivity and ultimately made individuals feel valued and included in the bigger picture.

“Since joining the company, I have been really impressed with the way you have focused on employee wellbeing. I have seen a real change in myself - I am more relaxed and happier at work. I have found the 1:1's with Emma, wellbeing initiatives and additional training very beneficial. The atmosphere here seems really supportive, and I hope you will continue to take this approach with staff in future”

BEWARE, this process is not for the faint hearted It can be tough at first, but I guarantee, with the right processes in place, the results will have a positive affect on your bottom line.

With 28 per cent of businesses saying that have had to turn down or halt bidding for work due to staff shortage (BCC in partnership with The Open University) The old adage ‘Look after your team and they will look after your business’ has never been so pertinent.

So, if you want to know what your employees are really thinking, be more productive and show your team you care get in touch?

If you don’t want to know what your team are really thinking I have one question for you.
