Dubai-based interiors and architecture firm Bluehaus Group has excelled at engaging with staff.
The company started www.gallup.com engagement surveys in 2016 and now in 2020, their results are four times the regions average for engagement.
Founder Ben Corrigan says: "It took us five years but Bluehaus Group has achieved our Gallup engagement goal of above the 'Grand Mean Percentile Rank' of 80.'
"According to Gallup, our 2020 engagement survey results Bluehaus Group have scored 'Engaged Employees 52 per cent', almost four times the regions average and a 'Grand Mean Percentile Rank' of 80.'"
Gallup defines engagement as a person who turns up at work with the intent to make 'extra, discretionary, focused, effort' around their specific role...they are your 'extra-mile' people.
"At Bluehaus Group we place enormous importance and focus on the well-being and happiness of our teams and people," adds Ben.
"Frankly speaking, in 2016, when we undertook our first Gallup engagement survey although we achieved 'Engaged Employees 26 per cent', and this is still higher than the global and regional average, this was not where we wanted to be as a business and for our culture.
"We then set ourselves a strategy to achieve ‘best in the world’ results and with timelines to get there within five years, or sooner."
He also gave thanks his team and corporate coaches 2bLimitless for their help in Bluehaus' success.
As well as starting the Gallup initiative, 2016 was also the year that Bluehaus took home Interior Design of the Year: Retail for Level Kids at that year's Commercial Interior Design Awards and designed a steam-punk themed cinema for Dubai.
