Sleep

A McKinsey survey of business leaders found that ‘46% believe that lack of sleep has little impact on leadership performance’. This seminar examines why these business leaders are frighteningly wrong. Sleep permeates every aspect of our being; it impacts health, mental wellbeing and work. A bad night’s sleep alters a person’s mood, judgement, empathy, mental acuity, focus, and concentration, and ability to learn and retain information. According to the RAND Institution, the cost of insufficient sleep has been estimated at USD50bn. Sleep matters for businesses - but it’s never too late to start respecting the importance of decent sleep. This seminar explores the importance of sleep, how a lack of it impinges business productivity, the ways in which we can get more sleep, and what businesses can do through wellness programmes to champion the importance of rest and increase productivity.

Environment & Flexibility

This seminar examines the ways in which physical working environments and flexible approaches to working impact productivity. This seminar provides evidence that illustrates exactly how working environments and flexibility impact productivity. Actionable office hacks that can implemented today, and a methodology to enable flexible working are explored. A secret to improving productivity lies within working environments and the ways in which people are empowered to work. We’ll demonstrate how businesses can benefit from making tweaks to environments and flexible working styles to improve productivity by up to 250%.

Meaning

Your workforce think their jobs are meaningless. According to a YouGov poll, 50% of people with a full-time job in the UK were ‘entirely sure’ their job made any sort of meaningful contribution to the world. 37%, however, were quite sure it did not. Given the number of jobs and professions — such as doctors, firefighters, teachers, farmers, and cleaners (who would naturally feel their job provides value in some form) — this broadly means everyone working in an office feels their job is meaningless. In other words, if the job suddenly didn’t exist, they feel like no-one would notice. What a waste. Meaning increases motivation, drives productivity and enhances engagement. You can no longer afford to ignore this.
