Not because they are not good things to have – in theory they are – but because so often they are words created to sound good, written by the senior team, a ‘project group’ or a bunch of consultants who then think ‘job done’. But everyone else thinks they are being ‘done to’.

No-one in the business really understands them or remembers them and even if they do, they don’t necessarily see those values being lived or breathed on a daily basis.

Tired of thinking about work whilst on holiday?

For many of us, the summer holidays can’t come soon enough.  And yet you know that there’s a huge amount to be done before you leave for your much-needed break….
