We teamed up with Brighton based chartered accountants, Plus Accounting, to offer a workshop on increasing employee retention and motivation.
breatheHR CEO, Jonathan Richards, kicked off proceedings with his thoughts and opinions on ways that he attempts to ensure employees remain engaged and motivated within his company.
Jonathan identified four key ingredients of a happier, more motivated and more productive workforce:
How you achieve the above and by what means are all determined, of course, by the size of your company and at what stage of growth your company is currently situated. However, one of his key pieces of advice is to invest in yourself. As a leader of any kind, it is important that you take the time for yourself to think and ensure that you understand the value of your time.
Paul Feist, Managing Director, Plus Accounting then went on to discuss EMI Schemes (Enterprise Management Incentive Schemes) and how these tax efficient schemes can help engage and motivate employees when used appropriately. EMI schemes are share option schemes that can be offered to key employees, which for a growing company is a key way to incentivise and retain employees by enabling them to receive the benefit of the increasing value of their employer company.
