Welcome back to the #PeoplePodcast
Before we jump in, we wanted to tell you about our really interesting webinar coming up with our sponsors Frankli this week which looks at the fundamentals of strong performance management processes and how they are underpinned by digital technology.
It’s time to leave the paper-based ways of the past behind and make the move to a digital process that supports you in achieving your goal
THURSDAY, 15th OCTOBER @ 12.30pm
I was delighted to have the opportunity to virtually sit down with one of their clients, Kieth Moran from SL Controls.
People clearly play a big part in the development of any business. But for SL Controls, the advancements in technology (robotics, virtual reality and data) meant their strategy was constantly changing. So I wanted to find out how they communicated those changes to their people. Without affecting personal development or culture.
Implementing a 3-year strategy, and using quarterly reviews, 1-1s conversations have been massive for the overall success of the SL Controls strategy. As Keith beautiful put it:
“The real power is giving people purpose. Once people have a purpose and they know what they’re doing, why they’re doing it and what it’s contributing the overall strategy. It’s transformative.”
