How You Can Use Entertainment To Motivate And Retain Your Staff

January 15th, 2013 by Kennedy

The most important thing to a business is it’s people. The satisfaction of your staff effects their motivation which in turn impacts on their effectiveness within the business.

Right now there is more job uncertainty on the high-street than ever before. Major and much beloved brands such as Comet, Jessops and HMV are struggling and going out of business and staff are bound to start questioning their own job security.

When our people are in a state of confusion or fear (both of which this kind of situation can cause) productivity and commitment to the business can plumet in to a spiral of “who knows if we’ll even have a job on Monday” and this in itself can cause the problems in the business.

A Unique Solution

One of the best ways of showing your staff that they are safe is by hosting really great events for them. This show that they are appreciated, allows them to bond and acts as ‘proof’ that business is good and you can afford to splash out to show them how vital they are to your success.

The Danger

One thing to be careful of is falling in to the ‘same old’ trap. This is where all the hard work you put in to an event vanishes when people think the event is ‘ordinary’. There are some great ways around this.

Simple things like clever balloon displays, having a unique entertainer (I would say that though wouldn’t I, but the fact is this is what clients tell us is their major reason for booking me), an interesting or different venue to what’s been used before for your events, or even just giving it a theme.

How To Use Entertainment To Make Everything Alright

In Part II of this series I’ll share with you what I’ve learned from Argos and the CIPD about how to use entertainment to bond your staff, and how to choose an entertainer who fits the bill – and that won’t just be a page full of ‘BOOK ME’ but more of a criteria you can check people off against so you can ensure you’re hiring the best.

To receive an email update when Part II is released simply pop your name and email address in to the Blog Digest subscription box above on the right.

To get the most out of staff we have to inspire and motivate them in a unique and engaging way. If you’d like to talk to me about how my performances are customised to do exactly that please do get in touch right now.

Kennedy was very professional, really entertaining and completely different to what we have booked in the past in terms of an after dinner speaker and entertainment. The performance amazed the whole audience and really lifted the spirits in the entire room in time for our formal proceedings.I would definitely recommend Kennedy to anyone looking for corporate entertainment.

What a fantastic night’s entertainment Mind of Kennedy provided. Some of the stuff he did is still being talked about at our company days after! Make sure you book him for your corporate event; you won’t be disappointed!

I can highly recommend Kennedy’s show to anyone looking for entertainment for a party, wedding or corporate event. He really was outstanding and kept us all laughing & on the edge of our seats all night!

(Feedback about our ruby wedding party last night) – Kennedy was absolutely fantastic. Not only did he work the room really well, and include people from different parts of the room, which is so important, but also he was an absolute delight to work with before, during and after the event... no trouble at all and completely accommodating. The act was tremendous and I love the idea that all our guests are sitting at home today over the Sunday papers, saying "how did he do that?!" I would have no hesitation in recommending Kennedy to anyone I know. Best wishes and thanks again to Kennedy for entertaining all our guests so well at our party. Jane & Pete Bradshaw

Great to see #lesmiserables today. Some of the best cast in a few years. Although I thought Javert was quite poor today. Brilliant show!

Quick #nandos before #LesMiserables matinee with @theroberttemple

What a night! Fantastic performances all round at #42ndstreet #london #theatre

So I went to the record shop and I said "What have you got by The Doors?" He said: "A bucket of sand and a fire blanket!" - Tim Vine
