Engaged employees G4S

G4S: Thinking ahead / employee engagement

G4S recruits, develops and deploys the best people in the industry. With around 570,000 employees, G4S is one of the world’s largest private sector employers. Their employees touch the lives of others every day, providing crucial services to keep them safe and secure. Company success is underpinned by the way we lead and engage with our people.

How does storytelling work and how do I develop a storytelling programme? The corporate communication department of the internationally active security group G4S chose the One Day Story scan to help them gain insight into the options and costs. In this workshop, the managers concerned connected with storytelling, their strategic story choices and personal stories at a deeper level. The blueprint for a customised storytelling programme was specifically defined with the help of our ABCDE storytelling method.

What will you experience during our employee engagement discovery workshop?

Why is purpose important for company engagement?

People want to work for purpose-driven organisations. They value development, career progression, transparency, fairness and flexibility. The challenge lies in getting them emotionally connected, offering them the development opportunities they need, and retaining your top performers longer.

As a business, you have to think ‘customer first’ and most managers are trained to think ‘results and operations first’. But to keep the best employees in your ranks you need to think ‘employee first.’ You have to build their confidence, motivation and know-how in order for them to stay clear-headed, resilient and performance-focused. So how can you do that? Discover the solutions in our discovery workshop!
