iPerform® Programme for Employee Engagement

iPerform® helps increase employee engagement

iPerform® is a unique e-Learning programme that helps employees, at all levels of your organisation, feel more engaged and perform at their best. iPerform® provides them with the core habits and practices to be effective and engaged in their work including emotional intelligence, agility, resilience, self-awareness, creativity, optimism, motivation, proactivity, work-life balance and stress reduction. They are far better prepared to flourish as they face increasing challenges, demands, uncertainty and continuous change in the workplace.

We have identified and modelled the skills and habits of the most engaged employees, and converted them into simple Practices that your own employees can apply to everything that they do, so they are more engaged themselves. These practices have been selected from the world’s leading engagement, performance, leadership and well-being programmes. They are based on the latest research in motivation, positive psychology, neuroscience, stress reduction, resilience, emotional intelligence and other critical disciplines that influence engagement. Each one is evidence-based and supported by extensive studies from leading universities and research centres.

How does the programme work?

Users learn one of these 28 practices every week, plus reviews every 5 weeks, to ensure that they can strengthen their new knowledge and skills and convert them into positive habits. Over a period of 8 months, each practice builds on the previous ones as part of an exact step by step system to deliver higher engagement and performance. We have created our programme to inspire and motivate employees to be the best they can be, and we have included some unique features within the programme so they are far more likely to implement their new skills. We use 5 methods to achieve this.

1 Daily Training

With daily training, employees increase their engagement day by day in incremental steps, reaching daily goals on their way to achieving their long-term goals.

2 Elearning

When users join the programme, we send them short videos, assignments and other resources every day so they can access them wherever and whenever is best for them. They can watch videos on their PC, laptop, Tablet or smartphone whether they are at home, at work or commuting. This gives them control of their own training so it can be self-paced and self-directed. It is also less expensive than traditional training and coaching, and there are no costs of setting up workshops, travel or lost productivity.

From November 2014 Users will also benefit from the new iPerform App which will give them offline videos, automatic login and push notifications. Our goal is to make iPerform the ultimate tool to ensure employees always have the best coaching and knowledge resources available to them at any time and any place they need it.

3 A bite sized approach

Rather than long training seminars that last many hours or even days, we provide short, bite size training that require about 5 to 10 minutes a day. By learning in bite-size chunks employees are more likely to do the training and the practices. Rather than overwhelming them with masses of information from day one, iPerform™ works by sending them small, bite-size training sessions every weekday. This regular, manageable daily process boosts implementation leading to the results that they and your organisation want.

4 Practices

We have identified the key skills, habits and behaviours of engaged, positive and fulfilled employees. We have converted these into Practices that users can learn and apply in everything that they do to support their personal and professional development. Genuine change is achieved through regular Practice. We believe that it is practice that is missing from almost every other training programme. Consistent practice and repetition is the key. With iPerform users can go back again and again to the training whenever they want, and improve through practice so that each week they continually increase their levels of engagement.

5 Enhance Current Programmes

iPerform is designed to enhance current employee engagement and other training initiatives by helping employees to engage themselves. It supports the work of line managers, coaches and trainers by adding the credibility of leading coaches from the outside to strengthen the development of your people inside your organisation.

6 Outstanding Coaches

Our iPerform coaches are world class athletes and Olympians, Roger Black and Steve Backley, plus Paul Hannam who is an expert on Engagement. Paul has written several books, coached thousands of employees, run a very successful business and taught at Oxford University. He also developed the concept of Intrinsic Engagement which is at the heart of iPerform. When users watch and learn from proven experts, they are far more likely to implement the practices and improve their performance.
