Corporate Programs & Workshops

Studies show that the departure of a key employee can cost an organisation up to 150 per cent of the employee's annual salary. On a $120,000 salary that's $180,000 – just for one person. This is because when a key employee leaves, they take valuable knowledge capital with them. The cost of replacing this knowledge vacuum can be huge.

And the reality is that if you don't provide employees a way to manage their careers, they'll do it for themselves – without your involvement or knowledge. We know traditional retention strategies focusing on 'golden handcuffs' are ineffective. This is where an engagement-focused retention scheme that emphasises flexibility, accepts change can be desirable for both the organisation and the individual, and which actively helps employees advance their careers offers significant benefits

Revitalize Your Organisation With Employee Engagement Programs

At Surcorp, we use an innovative process that enables senior managers to work proactively and honestly with self and others to create rewarding and stimulating career paths. We call this approach empowerment-based career management. It enables the organisation to either tailor a career path that will keep the employee actively engaged or a practical plan for succession when the time for departure arrives. And for employees, it fosters an organisational culture where they are free to express their career ambitions – whatever they might be – and then proactively work with the organisation to reach those ambitions. The result is happy, actively engaged employees who stay longer, are more productive and provide greater return on the time and money you invest in them.

Coaching Skills for the Workplace

Surcorp has developed a series of "Coaching Skills for the Workplace" programs which are tailored for different levels of seniority, different professions and different organizational contexts. Each program teaches the fundamental coaching skills, however the scenarios and context for the program are varied depending on the audience and program goals.

Effective Workplace Conversations

These programs equip participants with skills and tools to have conversations that will achieve results while maintaining relationships. Different conversations include; performance conversations, conversations for giving and receiving feedback and conversations for influence.

Emotional Intelligence

Emotional Intelligence(EQ) is the capacity to recognize an emotional state - your own and that of others - and incorporate that into relationships, both personal and workplace. Research shows that Emotional Intelligence is what separates successful workplace leaders from the less successful (Hay/McBer Research and Innovation Group 1997).
