To find out more about what we've been up to recently, and our thoughts and interpretations of the challenges that face the sectors in which we work, read on below.
‘A hug in an app’: providing staff with a 24/7 wellbeing solution
Our NHS is the heart of the nation. In recent times, it has been put under greater strain due to financial and workforce pressures, along with the increasing demand of an ageing population. This kind of pressure has ultimately led to many parts of the NHS becoming incredibly stressful environments to work in, with 30 per cent of sickness absences due to stress.
In light of this, the Walton Centre NHS Foundation Trust have recently taken an incredibly innovative and disruptive step to promote wellbeing throughout their organisation.
How do you make your event a catalyst for change?
As you can imagine, it can be incredibly difficult bringing together a large and geographically dispersed team on a regular basis – especially a group of leaders with intense time and work pressures. But even more challenging, once you have them in one room, is really making an impact that goes beyond their attendance on the day.
Who said engaging with employees was easy?
More often than we all would like, we see internal communication strategies overlooked or simply not given enough resources to really have an impact. A strong and effective internal communications strategy is essential when it comes to creating a shared vision and meaning across all teams within an organisation, and ensures everyone is working collaboratively towards a common goal.
We've blinked and it's 2019!
It’s a new year, so what do we want to make of it?
Looking back at 2018 we feel we achieved what we set out to, expanding our networks and developing our offer to better suit our clients’ needs. As a team we are happy with the success 2018 brought us, however that doesn’t mean we are happy to settle and have set ourselves a mountain of new challenges for the year ahead… watch this space!
#NHS70 – What it means to us…
The National Health Service has just turned 70, so what better opportunity than this to give our thanks to the nation’s most loved institution! Not only does the NHS have an enormous impact on our day to day lives here at Cynergy where we work hard to support them through creative engagement solutions, but also to our personal lives outside of the workplace. Like everyone else in the country, the NHS has affected each our team in many different ways, from maternity services and general practice, right through to cancer research and end of life care.
How do we do it differently?
Over the past ten years we have been working with the NHS North West Leadership Academy on a variety of their events, from the design and delivery of their Annual Leadership Recognition Awards to Masterclass Series and Membership Roadshows. However recently, the Academy have gone through a period of change in terms of their offer needing to align to the changing needs of members and stakeholders, giving NWLA the need to design something to meet this new, ever changing world and focus on what hot topics are important now.
