Leadership Out of Lockdown
East Midlands businesses unite to offer safe, sensible and considerate pathway
E-Learning Content Creation and Video Communication specialist Colab Creation, Human Resource and Culture experts Culturev8te Ltd and leading independent recruitment consultancy Macildowie are working together to provide the safe, sensible and considerate leadership that businesses across the United Kingdom need to make a successful return to work.
In a carefully prepared studio in Leicestershire, 5 minutes from the M1 Junction 21, Colab Creation, Culturev8te Ltd and Macildowie began the first in a series of safe film shoots while still observing social-distancing on Thursday 7th May 2020. The project will demonstrate the practical support, expert guidance and visible leadership available to help organisations in preparing their workforce and workplaces for the challenges that lie ahead.
Dan Lamoon, Director and Owner of Colab Creation, said: “Our Government isn’t able to provide us with the leadership we need, so it’s up to us as responsible businesses to inspire trust by caring for our people and customers. We still need restrictions of course, and that means making safe, sensible and considerate changes that put community and people first and strive towards making our world a nicer place to live and work.”
As we await more detailed information from the U.K. Government on what the world of work will look like following the Covid-19 pandemic, Colab Creation, Culturev8te Ltd and Macildowie Outstanding Recruitment are aware that many businesses and their people will be deeply concerned about the future.
From how to manage the needs of remote employees and maintain positive relationships with furloughed staff to seizing training opportunities or developing an inspirational company culture, this pioneering partnership offers practical benefits to organisations across the U.K. including:
- Licensed delivery of the world-renowned Insights Discovery® psychometric evaluation and workshop programme, which enables staff, managers and executives to better understand themselves, their needs and their relationships with everyone in their life, whether at home or at work.
- Expert management and production of innovative video solutions including live webinar events, learning management systems (LMS), internal communication broadcasts and remote provision of Continued Professional Development programmes and training.
- Qualified development and implementation of an effective Employee Value Proposition to attract, recruit and retain the right people
With decades of combined experience in e-learning, live video technology, HR, company culture, engagement, recruitment and training of staff across many disciplines, this team of East-Midlands businesses hopes to show that a positive return to work is possible if organisations and their people are provided with safe, sensible and considerate leadership.
Andy Gallimore, Director and Owner of Culturev8te Ltd, said: “Starting the process of changing someone’s mindset and routine is really important right now, so don’t be afraid to engage your staff in thinking what a return to work could look like, and you can absolutely do this with staff that are furloughed. The interactive sessions we provide support this shift, helping people understand each other and how they can work differently in the future.”
James Taylor, Chief Executive Officer at Macildowie, said: “At Macildowie we did these sessions with every single member of the business, including those on furlough, to communicate our belief that the world has changed and to support them to think about their role in that new normal. I hope we can all still go into an office and enjoy being with one another again, but certainly in the near future we need to help people return to work by employing as much technology and leadership as possible.”
