Employee engagement campaigns
that get all your people behind you

One of the greatest problems in the workplace today is people turning up to work but not really ‘turning up’. In fact, it costs the UK economy over £84 billion a year.

If you need your people behind you and worry about them not getting your message, then The Spark Effect is for you.

It is a unique and proven five-step process that will help you design and run a campaign that gives your employees a sense of purpose as well as boosting your productivity.

Whether you’re a public company with a global workforce or much smaller and local, the best employee engagement schemes inspire staff to take part by providing both purpose… and enjoyment.

We know what makes a great employee event
– and what it can do for you

Your employees will:

  • Get and feel proud of your mission
  • Feel valued and ready to contribute
  • Connect with each other
  • Develop their skills
  • Want to join your company and stay
  • Do better for their world
  • And have some fun

We know the formula
– and how to deliver

Our multi-talented team has the skills and experience to create inspiring engagement projects time and again.

What does it take to connect thousands of dispersed colleagues across the globe to do something great?

“In designing our Inspiring Women campaign with global retailer C&A, Fiona showed us how all it takes is one single, simple and compelling action. As a result, 23,600 of our colleagues (or 51% of the workforce) shared their stories of a woman who inspired them and connected across oceans to support the empowerment of women and girls, effectively raising EUR 1 million for 53 charities.”
Leslie Johnston, Executive Director, C&A Foundation

Helping you design a strategy that works for you
Joining the Dots

According to the Harvard Business Review, well managed companies believe in “devising a cogent CSR programme aligned with the company’s purpose and values.” but, “they are hampered by poor coordination and a lack of logic.”

We can help you design a coherent social responsibility programme that works for both your company and your beneficiaries. So that:

  • Your giving programme shares your values and purpose and contributes to it.
  • Your entire workforce participates in your giving.
  • Your volunteering works measurably for your company, your employees and those you volunteer for.
  • Your giving has impact for your beneficiaries and for you.
  • Your giving of time and money relates and is part of your wider sustainability programme.

Helping your people develop their skills.
Skills Return

91% of HR professionals agreed that skills based volunteering would add value to their training and development programmes, but only 16% of them intentionally offered skills based volunteering for employee development. Of those who did, only 13% offered it to all employees rather than just to management employees. *

We can advise you on how to make your skills based volunteering programme a win/win so that your volunteering will:

  • Become an effective part of your staff training and development programme.
  • Help employees develop their skills.
  • Boost productivity by connecting employees in and across teams.
  • Improve staff engagement levels.
  • Measurably work for your beneficiaries.
  • Be done in your time and according to your schedules.
