Too many people aren’t fulfilled by work, says Sir Ken Robinson

The recruiters we work with are always slightly mystified by how many people stay in unhappy job circumstances or feel they should be satisfied with a role simply because of its sizeable salary. Studies have shown that money doesn’t motivate in a way that encourages a sustainable and long-term sense of fulfilment. But if cash incentives aren’t effective, what can employers do to inject their employees with a sense of fulfilment at work?


Sir Ken Robinson, bestselling author, speaker, TED Talker and advisor on education for organisations ranging from non-profits to governments, sat down with Dr Martyn Newman of RocheMartin ahead of his keynote speech at the 2017 EQ summit in London on 25 May, to discuss how passion, people and purpose are the key to unlocking potential.


Newmen notes that one the main challenges facing employers who are looking to improve productivity and engagement rates, is understanding the unique and...

3 simple ways you can create a perfect work-life balance

In an age where there are more distractions and devices than ever before, carving time out of our busy work schedules can prove difficult – especially with a mobile in hand that keeps you connected 24/7. The rise of remote working has also had an impact on this, as people find it increasingly difficult to make the distinction between when work ends and relaxation begins.

It is an easy trap to fall into – you’re at home and decide to check your email or respond to a couple of Tweets, and before you know it you’ve eaten up invaluable time that would have been better spent unwinding with friends and family. It is a familiar predicament, but as these tips originally shared on Entrepeneur.com can attest, it is also one you can overcome.

How to make a great 15-second video

We help many companies hire with video, and we have seen many winning strategies.  Each company has different expectations though generally employers are looking for you to make a short pitch about your suitability to the job and to share your passion or motivation to join them.

Preparation - this varies with personal style, but some people like to script out the 15 seconds to make sure their message fits, while others are more comfortable winging it. You can use the scripting mode in our mobile apps to help you prepare and while you hold down the record button it will scroll as you speak. You can also start and stop recording to build up a sequence of short sections that might show you working on something fun and interesting, being creative or you can even compile your own animation! Once you have finished filming, you can preview, go back and re-film and preview again as many times as you like before submitting to the employer.

When you're prepared and...
