Sticky From The Inside is the employee engagement and workplace culture podcast that looks at how to build stickier, competition-smashing, consistently successful organisations, from the inside out.

Each episode I chat with guests from a variety of backgrounds, who share their thoughts, stories, ideas and insights into how you can create a workplace where people love what they do and who they do it for. Where customers get you, love what you do and passionately recommend you to others. That's what we call a "Stickier Business".

    Hospitality’s Engagement Challenge

    Hospitality’s Engagement Challenge

    In a recent poll, a staggering 42% of people working in the Hospitality industry said that they wanted to leave.  But this number fell to 6% from a list of businesses that made it into the long list of the Best Places To Work in UK Hospitality, run by The Caterer magazine. So what are these guys doing that's so different?
     
    In this episode, your host, Andy Goram, talks to experienced Hospitality-focused engagement and culture specialist and long time Hospitality campaigner, Jane Sunley, as they exchange notes from their recent attendance at The Caterer's 2022 People Summit, and work through what the best places to work in UK Hospitality are actually doing to attract and retain their people.

    People Priorities For Rapid Change

    People Priorities For Rapid Change

    Rapid growth and change bring unique people challenges to deal with.  Legend has it that Google's founders were still interviewing and signing off on new Googlers well into the first 1000 employees.  But is that sensible for everyone?  There's a point at which you have to let go of some stuff, right?
     
    In this episode, your host, Andy Goram, talks to the experienced scale-up HR professional, and author of the book "Scaling For Success", Andrew Bartlow, on what it really takes to successfully deal with hypergrowth and take your people with you at the same time.

    How To Generate A Truly Caring Culture

    How To Generate A Truly Caring Culture

    What does it take to generate a truly caring culture within a business?  What moves you from talking about caring about the people you work with and have the privilege to lead, to actually doing it?  What are the benefits of truly caring?  Is that even a question we need to ask? Isn't it obvious?  Well, whether it is obvious or not, it certainly isn't common practice, despite what the last two years have shown us about the importance of looking out for each other and showing that people really matter.
     
    In this episode your host, Andy Goram, talks to Jane Adshead-Grant, executive coach, and author of the books “Are you listening, or just waiting to speak?” and the recently published “The Listening Coach”.  Jane is also an Ambassador of Truly Human Leadership and part of the Chapman & Co. Institute who want to create more businesses who truly care.  The wonderful Bob Chapman and Barry Wehmiller story provides the backdrop for a great conversation on what it really takes to generate a truly caring culture.

    How To Create An Intentionally Joyful Culture

    How To Create An Intentionally Joyful Culture

    "When the work of your heart, your hands, and your mind is done to serve others with delight, that is joy."  That is the mantra of Rich Sheridan, Co-Founder of Menlo Innovations, a software development company that is known the world over for its intentionally joyful culture.
     
    In this episode, your host, Andy Goram talks to the international speaker and best-selling author of Joy Inc., and Chief Joy Officer about what it takes to create an intentionally joyful culture. But don't be fooled by the word joy.  This isn't a lesson in how to be more happy-clappy at work.  Far from it.  This is about working hard, as a team, with a clear sense of purpose and an empowering spirit of experimentation and trust.
