“Engaged employees are in the game for the sake of the game; they believe in the cause of the organization.” – Paul Marciano, PhD
Pr Investing in employees is the single most important investment that a company can make." – Brian Smith
Prior research indicates that employers have struggled to fully invest in their employees and as such, their businesses have suffered as a result. A study by the Associations of Accounting Technologies showed that 15% do not spend money on training and 26% only invest in training for specific circumstances.
Over the years, technology in the workplace has become increasingly present; be it a self-serving checkout or some advanced computer software, keeping companies in the now. But in recent years, a new tool has emerged from the technological toolbox. The key to adaptability now comes in the form of an Employee App, connecting employers and employees alike, with the capacity to take the various work sectors forward. How, you ask? We answer, starting with retail.

Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success - Henry Ford
Most employees have to work together. That’s simply the way of work. But the real goal is ensuring that all employers work well together. As Big Sam (Sam Allardyce) takes on football’s impossible (England) job, you can’t help but compare business with football. Building a successful team of employees is like building a successful football team; ultimately, ‘the whole must be greater than the sum of its parts’.
“We cannot allow free movement to carry on as it is” - Theresa May, UK Prime Minister
While the UK referendum has come and gone, it could be years before EU relations are fully dismantled and we can literally consider ourselves ‘out of the EU’. Of course, the referendum is not the only potential exiting that people should be concerned with. Another heavily debated issue – further amplified by the vote – is immigration. Not only in regards to the UK’s future stance on immigration, but the status of migrant workers currently living in the UK.
British politics has witnessed another dramatic change with Theresa May officially taking the role of Prime Minister. David Cameron has handed over the keys to 10 Downing Street to May, while Angela Eagle’s bid for Leadership of the Labour Party will lead to some intriguing developments.
In the wake of Brexit, there has been a lot of uncertainty circulating in the media, especially in regard to politics. The political tree has been shaken with the resignation of Nigel Farage from the UKIP Party. This is only the latest in a long line of developments. Cameron is due to step down in three months time, Corbyn is maintaining his stance. Essentially, a lot of focus has been on politicians scrambling to re-assess their positions as the dust settles.
After a tremendous build-up, the EU Referendum has come and gone and we are officially out of the European Union. Granted, the dismantling is not an immediate one, we still have several practices to put into place before we can officially begin our tenure as an independent nation.
