Unlocking potential and productivity

Are you ready to boost productivity, unlock your employees’ potential, and increase workplace performance? Then, read on …

I once spoke to a business owner who was lamenting the lack of passion among his employees. He couldn’t understand it, he told me, when they were just a handful of people in the business they had boundless energy and enthusiasm. They were going to change the world – they had a strong sense of purpose. But now that they had just under a 100 people, the client saw a dramatic decrease in productivity and profit. He knew that he had good people – so what was causing the decline? What happened to the passion that drove them when they were starting out?

Why I started PerformForward

I’ve come across this scenario countless times in my work as an HR transformation consultant. I must admit, at first I couldn’t understand why people sometimes don’t enjoy their jobs. I’ve always loved work; I was 14 years old when I started my first casual job and I never looked back.

So, I decided to share my love of work with other people. My passion – my “Why?” with apologies and great thanks to Simon Sinek – is helping people find a sense of purpose and fulfilment in their work. That is why I started my company – PerformForward.

What is PerformForward?

At its core, PerformForward is a company that helps business owners understand how they can unlock their employees’ potential. We look beyond traditional HR approaches to the heart of your business – your employees.

“To win in the marketplace you must first win in the workplace.” – Doug Conant

Our mission is to help companies improve employee experience, unlock employee potential and increase performance capability. Our approach is based on a three-pronged philosophy: engage, focus, and perform.

What do we do?

We know that there are many aspects to motivating employees to do their best, which is why we look at five critical factors in your business:

  • Strategy
  • Culture
  • Leadership
  • Performance management
  • Employee engagement

These factors are inextricably linked and need to be given equal attention if you want to grow your business and its workers.

How can we help your business?

At PerformForward, we are passionate about working with companies that appreciate their employees and the value they add. Our forward-focused approach is based on over 20 years of business experience in various disciplines, including psychology, human resources, organizational development, internal communications, project management and marketing.

This allows us to create bespoke solutions tailored to each company’s unique needs. We provide business leaders with feedback based on current trends and empower them with strategies to overcome challenges in the workplace.

It is time to reinvent how we approach human performance by creating a synergy between business objectives and productivity. Purpose should be the core driver of each and the common denominator across the board.

Over the next few weeks, I will be sharing videos and stories from a recent workshop that I presented on the link between passion and productivity. I’ll share valuable insights and advice on how to reignite your employees’ passion and productivity and how you can find your business purpose – and help your employees find theirs.

Until then, get in touch with me on LinkedIn or via email to learn more.

My company, PerformForward, has allowed me to focus on assisting businesses in unlocking potential and performance capacity in employees using a results-based forward focused approach. The methodology rests on the four pillars of performance management, employee engagement, organisational culture and leadership. Optimising alignment across these areas not only allows for improved performance across the business but also assists in getting companies ready for rapid growth and addresses some common pitfalls around the scalability of business functions.
