Getting Better Buy-In: Proven Tools To Create & Maintain A Workplace Culture That Attracts & Retains Talent

Buy the book

Have you ever tried to scope the sheer scale of the cost of your staff churn, disengaged employees and turnover? Never mind the recruitment costs, what about all the indirect effects on productivity and morale as people depart, arrive, learn, remake mistakes & institutional knowledge walks out the door with their stapler. It’s a spiral. It’s a small world made smaller by the internet. You do not want a reputation as a poor employer as you know that’ll drive away talented people and, soon after, drive away customers. Well, what do you want?

You want to be running, and belong to, a workplace of choice. If ever a vacancy occurs, it’ll be for the right reasons and talent will beat a path to your door and that’ll magnetically attract more talent. That’s the kind of spiral you do want. But how? Good question. (Smart people ask good questions. That’s one of the lessons of this programme!)

You’d like to know that the effort will be worth it. You’d like to know what drives these engaged employees. You’d like to know the specific actions you can take to influence the choice of talent to... choose... you. The title ‘Workplace of Choice’ is a red herring. Talent wouldn’t be choosing your workplace, they’d be choosing YOU. (Or not...?) Tools for managing change and influencing behaviour based on an extensive collection of workplace and psychology research - all told in an engaging style not an academic lecture.

Client Comment:

“Terry is a very engaging speaker who presents with passion, humor and a mischievous streak. He clearly knows his subject but much more importantly he is able to impart his knowledge and connects with the audience. He leaves you not just inspired to take action but with the information and tools to do so. Terry’s presentations were interesting, funny, thought-provoking and educational. Many of our delegates gave him two-thumbs up for his session and have asked to hear him speak again next year.“ – Fiona Sim, Key Media, Singapore
