    Tips for Increasing Your Workplace Presence in 2016

    in Business

    Have you ever wondered why some people get noticed and others don't? Start your new year off right with some strategies for increasing your presence. During this episode of the Employee Engagement Corner, Image Expert, Ron Rapatalo, offers some helpful tips for building a winning image and how to afford it. 


    Ron Rapatalo leads and supports hiring searches for leadership roles for school districts, charter schools and nonprofits independently and in partnership with firms including the Offor Walker Group.  As a product of NYC public schools, he saw the power of education and leadership to change his life and career trajectory.   Ron also does career coaching and men’s personal styling.  As a career coach, he gives career advice on how to navigate career transitions and present oneself from networking to interviewing.  Ron’s fifth grade teacher, Mr. Seluga was his most memorable coach for telling Ron he could choose ANY career he wanted. As a men’s personal stylist through J.Hilburn, Ron brings the tailor to a man’s home or workplace and provides wardrobe recommendations that accentuate a man’s personal style.   He believes that a well-dressed man is a more confident man.

    Show #127: Repositioning Employee Engagement

    in Business

    Special Guests: Andy Heath, co-founder of WeThrive; Piers Bishop, co-founder of WeThrive and Janine Osmond, Head of L&D at Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust


    At WeThrive we spend our working lives talking to people whose lot is to create or maintain an engaged workforce. They don’t always put it like that – the expressed desire might be to have a happy staff, or to improve employee retention, but what they actually want in the end is a workforce that really wants to engage with the company and their work. That doesn’t just happen, of course; it’s a consequence of getting a lot of other things right, so since 2011 we have been working on a way to help HR and L&D people move employee engagement out of the realm of ‘good idea, but…’ and into the very heart of the people-management efforts.


    Janine is in the ‘interesting’ position of trying to help NHS staff stay engaged with their work at a time when the organisation is under more pressure than ever to deliver more with less, and we’d very much like to hear from you too – please email us with questions or topics you’d like covered on the show, starting at 5.15 on September 7th.

    Join us as we talk about what visual thinking is, how to get an organisation ‘visual thinking’ and how it can be used to engage a workforce.

    Helping people throughout an organisation have a shared understanding the organisations story (often referred to as its strategic narrative) is a key part of any engagement strategy.


    His career began working in a variety of learning and development roles for Boots the Chemists including e-learning and behavioural competency development roles. He then went on to lead the learning and development function at Nottingham Building Society introducing a blended learning approach, overseeing the skills and behavioural development aspects of a major core systems implementation and designing the society’s first management and executive development programmes.
