Workshop A: Creating a Motivational Employee Experience with a Hybrid Workforce
An introduction to mojo – the motivation and productivity platform – which focuses on energising your enterprise.
To get the best out of your people, you first need to understand what motivates them. Fully motivated employees are not only more productive and high-performing, they will also be more resilient and be in a better wellbeing place.
In this workshop, you will:
- Understand the importance and impact of motivation in the workplace
- Learn the ROI of the Employee Experience
- Take a mojo map to understand your intrinsic motivators and current levels of motivation
- View a team map to understand which motivators complement each other, where they could clash, and any gaps within a team
- Work together to create a better work environment, based around people’s motivators
