Do you want business growth in 2021? We have found the solution.

Posted by Sharnee on 15/01/2021

As the financial markets take another dive, the focus is once again on how to make sure your business is working as smartly and as efficiently as possible. Motivation could be the key.

This is the first of two blogs where we look at how motivation must start from the top, and the impact this has on your employees …

For your company to achieve sustainable growth, workplace engagement is essential. However, according to Gallup, only 13% of employers worldwide are engaged at work. Only one in eight workers are psychologically committed to their jobs and are likely to make positive contributions to their organisations. Now, here in Australia and New Zealand, we are doing ok. We have the second-highest proportion of engaged workers globally at 24%. Yet that still leaves three-quarters of our workforce who are not engaged or worse still, actively disengaged.

Is Your Business Throwing Away Money,  Rekeying Data?

Posted by Edward - CEO on 05/05/2020

In any business, the ability to efficiently collect and analyse data is widely acknowledged as key to its success. But incredibly, the widespread use of spreadsheets for data manipulation and storage is alive and kicking. Reports are delivered with much effort and often collated from data that let’s face it, is old.
