Mastering Small Business Employee Engagement

30 Quick Wins & HR Hacks from an IIP Platinum Employer


How can we do employee engagement well during the Coronavirus pandemic, Brexit and huge economic uncertainty? How can we motivate every employee including the increasing number of people working from home?

Mastering Small Business Employee Engagement will change the way you manage your small business – for the better.

Not everything Barry Phillips (Chief Executive) and Jayne Gallagher (Managing Director) tried as an employee engagement tool worked as they started to grow their small business (don’t ask about the ill-fated ‘Bring your Dog to Work’ day) but they learnt quickly. Now, they share their secrets of success with you.

This practical guide and reference manual explains the eight essential components of employee engagement, plus their 30 Quick Wins and HR Hacks that culminated in their crowning as 'Best Place to Work (SME)' and an Investors in People Platinum award in 2019.

Packed with tips, case studies and templates, this is a must-read for business leaders aiming to get the very best from their employees.

It doesn’t matter whether employees are office based, remote or just working from home whilst the country is in crisis – these tips apply equally.

Perhaps you’re a business owner, an SME leader, a franchise manager, a start-up or simply someone charged with motivating small teams of people? If you’re wondering how to find the secrets to true employee engagement quickly and in one place it’s simple - read this book.

Thank you to Troubador Books and Net Galley for providing a e-ARC in exchange for my honest review. This book came at a good time when my daughter had just been promoted to management. I will order a copy for her, and I know she'll make great use of it. This has unique ideas and realistic tasks that you can use to become a better manager.
