Companies With This Winning Edge Weathered Lockdown Storms. Lynne Thomas, CEO Thomas Consulting

Business without Barriers! Season 2: Game Changer

Employees and customers are the engine of your company! Lynne Thomas shares her pearls on how unhappiness in the ranks equates to a floundering bottom line. Refusing to work with companies that don’t care about their employees, she shares simple yet powerful strategies for staff retention through extreme humanism in the new context of business where a Triple Win is well within reach. Before Covid, as much as 65% of employees were not engaged. Since Covid hit, feelings of mounting personal stress and in some instances a feeling of being unheard or uncared for has resulted in as much as 36% of employees leaving their jobs without having an alternative job lined up, a huge loss for industry. Never underestimate the power of really engaged, passionate, and innovative employee because they will regularly wow and delight you, says Lynne. Her belief that there’s a slice or two of genius in each person, steers us strongly to tap employees for their valuable input into how to solve problems, demonstrating that inspired and involved employees provide a better return on investment as their loyalty to the organisation soars. This is the real Game Changer in the new world of work according to Lynne. Employers should not just accept the loss of excellent employees which can have a very negative knock-on effect on their client-base. Lynne sparkles with interesting and smart and fun approaches to authentically communicate and connect with your valued employees to show care, consideration and concern to keep them productive, engaged and committed to your organisation through more relational rather than transactional methods. Indeed, life happens on the skinny branches, where you’re out on a limb taking a chance, which requires doing things differently! You have to be flexible, able to pivot and purposely do things that make you uncomfortable to provide yourself with new perspectives and innovative ideas on plugging the holes to retain staff and clients. Admittedly, we’re a little rusty with social skills right now, so if you feel uncomfortable, that’s okay. Lynne laughs and says, “Everyone's gonna be uncomfortable because we're doing new things.”. This is a time for growing trust and pooling strengths and innovative ideas through meaningful communication. She shares interesting stories, ideas and insights and inspires us to be bold and brave in setting our businesses up for higher engagement and breakthrough results. No matter your level of discomfort, shoot higher! A must watch interview for every business leader!
