Stef Du Plessis:
How Workplace Culture Stifles Performance and Erodes Work-life Integration and What You as a Leader Can Do About It
Research shows that employees can, and want to, 'give' substantially more.

So, what stops them? Workplace culture. Leaders, everywhere, know this - but most admit that they don't know how to 'manage' culture. So it's left to chance.

The Unwritten Ground Rules, or UGRs, concept changes that. Because it provides a simple and practical, one-of-a-kind approach to understanding, assessing, improving, and embedding a culture-by-design that will enable the delivery of your strategic objectives, whilst at the same time making yours a great place to work. So say the leaders across the organisations in 50+ countries who have used UGRs to ramp up employee engagement, boost performance and bolster overall employee wellbeing. Including organisations like McLaren, Barclays Bank, KMart Australia, and many others - as well as a whole host of smaller companies, too. Across all industries.

But you need more than a framework to re-boot your culture. You also need your people to really 'want to' embark on the journey with you. And that's why the UGRs concept rests on a foundation of deep-rooted personal engagement - a unique approach to employee engagement, leadership, and work-life integration.
