By |March 17th, 2022|employee burnout, Employee Engagement, Mental wellness in the workplace, Workplace Culture|

One of my clients, let’s call him Rhett, owns a micro business in one of the most stressful industries there is. I know, I know. Everyone is stressed (which is kind of the point of this blog). But Rhett is a Vet - and guess which profession has one of  the highest rate of suicides, at [...]

Are you pulling your hair out because another employee complaint just landed on your desk? Will you have to spend (yet more) time and money on recruiting and onboarding another employee this quarter? Have you just received yet another customer complaint because one of your staff was rude or unhelpful?  Or maybe, your frustration is at [...]

This time last year (i.e. December 2020), inspired by the work of my favourite Word Nerd and Communication Guru, Holly Cardamone, I posted my first ever Annual Wrap-Up. And whilst I can’t actually believe that it is already the end of another year, it’s now time to hit post on a wrap up of this year’s [...]

The typical Workology Co client looks a little like this…

Picture this: Six out of seven members of a particular team in your organisation have just permanently exited the building. Ostensibly, they are telling you it is something to do with not being happy about your insistence that they return to the office full-time. You have heard some rumours that this might not be the whole [...]

Are you smiling after you saw this meme (or Me-Me as I used to think they were called)? Did you feel a little rush of serotonin (the happy endorphins) through your body? Perhaps you neck muscles loosened just a little - it’s physically challenging to work remotely all day, every day, isn’t it! If so, you [...]

The Workology Co definition of Exceptional Workplace Culture

As I write this blog, it is early July here in Melbourne town. Early July =  several things. 1: It’s cold and often rainy. Man, do I desperately need to chase some cosmics.* 2: We are in the heart of footy season. But that’s all I’m gunna say about that, because I’m currently on a break [...]

Exit Interviews: The Why and The How (not to)

Many years ago, a good mate of mine worked in a role that ended up being the shortest one of her HR career. Looking back, the warning signs were there from before she even started. Exhibit A: her new manager cancelled their scheduled pre-start-employment meeting half an hour before she was due to arrive. Just after [...]

‘Human Centric’ – a term you won’t find Workology Co using apart from within this blog

By |May 10th, 2021|Employee buy-in, Employee Engagement, Employee Experience, Exceptional Workplace Culture, key ingredients of exceptional workplace culture, people-first approach, Workplace Culture|

One of the things I try very hard NOT to be, particularly when wearing the Workology Co hat, is overly political or controversial. Having spent two and half decades assisting clients to manage conflict or its fall out in one way or another, I don’t like to invite it into my working world where I can [...]
