In this exclusive video for the BTN, Claire Jordan discusses the project that led to the ABP Award for ‘Excellence in Employee Engagement’ winning.
Claire begins by discussing the project that led to winning the 'Excellence in Employee Engagement' award. The organisation was struggling with employee engagement, with engagement being stated as an issue during exit interviews. The project worked to improve internal communications and the employee experience as a whole. Claire investigated what was missing from the interaction between leaders and employees and developed the 'Great Conversations' framework to understand the issues and then put measures in place to counter them.
