Show #101: Employee Engagement – Making It Stick

Special Guest: Adrian Phipps, Head of People & Organisation, Arqiva

Adrian is Head of People & Organisation at Broadcast & Media company Arqiva. Over the last 8 years, he has helped both Arqiva and the Insurer More Th>n (part of the RSA group) to make major improvements in employee engagement.

During his time with them, Arqiva has achieved a 1* rating in the Sunday Times Best Companies competition, and RSA was ranked as one of the Top 25 UK companies to work for. Outside of work, he is a proud (if a little tired!) father of a toddler and an 8 month old baby, and loves being out on the water – whether swimming in it or in a sea kayak.

Join us as we talk about how to make engagement “stick” in an organisation. We all know the theory and it sounds great in principle – but very few organisations make the big shifts in engagement that we hope for.

Having been part of two organisations that really have made this change, Adrian shares some useful beliefs that organisations need to hold if engagement is going to improve and also some of the practical things you can do to improve engagement where you work.

Host: Jo Dodds
