ENGAGE AND GROWYour pathway to rediscover your passion and purpose and in turn increase your profits
We work with you to build fully engaged, high performing teams.
We help you to identify leaders, improve staff retention, increase productivity and engagement levels.
The clients we have worked with have all seen an increase in their turnover and profits.
Engage and Grow is not an Occupational Health service, but what we do is identify the real cause of why people are off sick and deal with the issues which will reduce stress and engender engagement and positive feelings to both your organisation, the team and their own work.
The Engage and Grow Programme is delivered in 90-minute sessions over a 12 week period. As it is delivered on your premises this saves you both time and money. The group size is typically 8 to 12 people.
All our services are specifically designed to activate the minds of your employees by tapping into the finer points of neurology, the science of motivation and hold them accountable for their goals.
We can also create bespoke solutions – this 6-month solution saved a bank £3million.
We recently supported a leading bank to reduce their stress levels from 81% to 63%. The bank had both an Occupational Health system and a well-being process for their employees in place but we discovered they were not dealing effectively with the stress. The pre-assessment discovered poor leadership was causing the issues. Once that was identified, a bespoke programme was implemented in order to resolve this issue and within 6 months of this problem being discovered we have reduced the sick pay by £3m and reduced the stress levels to 63%.

The cost of sickness absence
For UK organisations the yearly cost of sickness absence is now in the region of £29 billion, according to recent research by the CIPD. (Source: HR Magazine) There is much to be done to reduce the level of absence in the workplace. The implications of sickness absence on the workforce are numerous, ranging from financial through to motivational and customer service issues.
What are the main reasons for employee sickness?
The Office of National Statistics lists the leading causes of sickness absence in the UK in descending order as:
- Musculoskeletal conditions – i.e. neck and back pain (31 million days lost)
- Minor illnesses like the common cold (27 million days lost)
- Mental health issues including depression, anxiety and stress (15 million days lost)
Impacts of sickness absence
Sickness absence has numerous impacts on businesses. These include:
- Reduction in productivity due to fewer workers.
- Obligations to pay the salary or sick pay of absent workers.
- Having to find, train and pay for temporary cover.
- The possibility of reduced customer satisfaction.
- Reduction in motivation and morale from the other staff.
- Higher costs in sick pay.
An Aviva study showed that 15 per cent of organisations asked as part of a survey said they struggle to cover the cost of a temp as well as the absent employee’s salary. Twenty-one per cent said service standards also suffer as a result.
