Commitments

To improve communication, build relationships and trust, improve knowledge
and understanding, and encourage feedback.

Themes

  • Acting Together
  • Tackling Ill Health

Activity

Engagement discussions – short interactive sessions delivered by site managers to a small group of individuals using electronic presentations and ‘grab cards’ with a poster featuring visuals, key messages and discussion points. A specific engagement discussion was developed around ‘Safe Lives’, promoting and raising awareness on managing occupational health risks.

Timing

The engagement discussions were launched across Morgan Sindall at the beginning of 2016.
Each business unit has developed a specific implementation
plan for a rolling programme. The suite of discussions
continues to develop as further topics are added.

Impact

The workforce and supply chain find them interactive and quick to deliver, with valuable opportunities to ask questions, give feedback, feel involved and improve knowledge and understanding.

Update

The feedback on the Engagement Discussions from the workforce and supply chain has been very positive.
The ‘grab card’ format has proved very popular as they are interactive and quick to deliver, with valuable opportunities to ask questions, give feedback, feel involved and improve knowledge and understanding.
Morgan Sindall have found that the supply chain partners have since asked for the Grab Cards to brief their own workers, taking a shared responsibility and using them as a coaching/mentoring means for their own staff.
Used as a case study in HSE Annual Conference 2017 programme.
