C is for Communication

Communication is the most critical ingredient of good, let alone great or exceptional, culture. There. I said it. Workology Co's Whitepaper found there are 6 key ingredients that make up exceptional workplace culture. Communication was one of the six. But in all honesty, in the absence of good communication practices, the other 5 ingredients  (such as [...]

B is for Belonging

What is belonging in a workplace context, and what does it look like? Diversity and inclusion go hand in hand with  what a sense of belonging looks like in workplaces. You’ve probably heard Vanessa Meyers infamous quote, and if we add belonging in, it looks a little like this. Imagine thanks to Quozio [...]

A is for Acknowledgment

Recently I was asked to submit a Bio for a prospective new client, along with a specific request to include examples of client testimonials. Whilst collecting testimonials is not one of my strengths (insert awkward cough emoji), I reached out to a few clients to enquire about their willingness to provide me with something I [...]

Why hybrid working arrangements are just the start

As I noted in a recent ‘Tuesday Tip’ on Workology Co’s socials, the rise and rise of hybrid working arrangements has absolutely been one of the Very Best Things to come out of the pandemic. IMO. However, this little workplace culture nerd is becoming increasingly concerned at hearing stories of organisations  latching onto the concept [...]

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 [...]

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

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 [...]

Thank you, Sir Richard.

Clients do not come first. Employees come first. If you take care of your employees, they will take care of your clients. I have never personally met Sir Richard Branson. He of the billions, island owner, multi-successful businesses etc etc. I wish I had though, if only to say a big Thank You for ever [...]

Why RFC is a workplace culture nerd’s dream (and nightmare)

It actually causes me pain to write this. The Richmond Football Club should be a lesson to us all. Ok, now I’ve managed to actually get those words out there, let me offer a couple of disclaimers. #1 I love footy. AFL footy that is. I mean, come on, is there really any other kind? [...]

Reasons why Workplace Wellness is the topic on everyone’s lips (or should be)…

Did you know*: Healthy workers are up to 3 times more productive than unhealthy workers For example, an unhealthy worker will deliver 49 hours effective work per month vs an healthy worker who will deliver 143 hours effective work per month Healthy workers are less absent from work, and more engaged and productive when present [...]
