In this edition of Shin(e)-news we look at the business benefits of an engaged workforce; how to figure out the Top 3 Things  you could do differently that matter to your people (at home & work!) and some ERA outcomes on trial periods.

On the back of the workplace bullying blogs i've been posting, I've been asked by people to develop a list of the types of bullying behaviours to look out for.  Click here to read the handout.  Do remember, as I suggested in this blog post, not everybody who demonstrates these behaviours may be consciously bullying.  It's important to make the distinction before deciding how best to proceed.

If you have any questions on the stuff covered give me a call.  If you think others would benefit from receiving  Shin(e)-news, please forward this email to them so they can subscribe.
