Employee Engagement

Employee Engagement

Happy people get heard

All too often, employee engagement consists of an annual appraisal and a few directionless ‘chats’ with a team leader or manager. And (maybe) a weekly fruit basket.

Unsurprisingly, this doesn’t do much to help people feel heard, or even wanted.

Retention suffers as employees get fed up of being taken for granted and so take their skills and experience elsewhere. Keeping the team happy is the key to an engaged, productive workforce that will go to war for you. But if they don’t feel valued you’ll never experience anything more than a transactional relationship.

Employee engagement
The 1850 Way

When it comes to employee engagement, we’re proactive, not reactive. It’s the core of what we’re about.

This means we’ll dig deep to find out exactly what your employees want and need to feel listened to and valued.

If they don’t feel like they’re getting enough face-time with managers and mentors, we’ll help you put in place regular performance reviews. We’ll help you ensure they’re getting a fair reward for their hard work by benchmarking your salary and benefits package against your competitors.

Best of all, we can roll out the Yoomi app in your business to help you cultivate meaningful, two-way communication between your managers and their teams. This revolutionary bit of kit will help you check-in with your employees and monitor their wellbeing. And it does this without reams and reams of paperwork, all the while fitting neatly in with normal business activities.

We Will…

I would highly recommend the services of 1850. They were a delight to work with, professional yet approachable, they made the whole process of reviewing our HR policies and documentation straight forward. A task I had been putting off for sometime was not the headache I had envisaged once they reviewed our processes and provided advice on the best way forward. We look forward to continuing to work with Claire and the team on future projects.

Claire is amazing! Very helpful and knowledgeable. Always thinks outside the box and has helped me to relax a little whilst taking on my new role in HR. Would definitely recommend to anyone needing support from a professional.

Claire has been providing out-sourced HR support for my business, supporting everything from contract and policy development (definitely not a handbook!) to consulting on working environment, team structure and culture. She combines her in-depth knowledge of the legal requirements for employers with a refreshing perspective on what it means to be a people-focused business, and how to put that vision into action. If you truly want to put people at the heart of what you do, I would thoroughly recommend working with Claire and her team.

We have been working with Claire since early 2020. Claire's support has been instrumental in providing clarity in our business over employee policies. We have found this has enormously improved confidence and morale through the COVID pandemic. Claire has a great approach to HR and it is refreshing to be working with a company that is passionate about their product. I couldn't recommend Claire enough. We are looking forward to working together into the future.
