Start the year off with a great step forward
“Being recognised as an Investor in Excellence means that we can start the year driving continuous improvement, moving in the right direction to become an effective, efficient and agile workforce. This is just the start of how we’re becoming Operationally Excellent in Customer Operations and we now have a great base to build on. Through delivering what matters most to our customers, it’s a great step to achieving our strategic goals”.

You’ve made your plans and the scene is set but do your team know your plans for the year ahead? Really? If they don’t know where your organisation is going, they won't feel very inspired or motivated. However, if they feel part of the future and know how they can contribute, they will certainly feel more engaged, valued and part of the bigger picture.
Nothing saps productivity quicker than feeling undervalued. Staff don't need a New Year Honour. Say 'Thank You'. Make sure your team members know their work is appreciated and achievements are not going unnoticed. See how LACE Housing did this by honouring their Excellence Champion.
