“After bonding over Maslow, Amy & Sam quickly discovered they had a lot in common. They pooled their experiences – both personal and professional – to create their own People Consultancy, called Maslow’s (what else..!). Their aim is to shape culture, help people and teams to fulfil their potential both professionally and personally. “Happier people, better business success” summises Amy. “It extends to hiring, management and flexible working models…” adds Sam. In a world where we have become hyper-connected and the lines between work life increasingly blurred, stress levels have reached an all time high. This observation acted as a further catalyst for Amy & Sam to create the business and turn their ideas into action. We cover the effects of Covid-19, purpose, employer branding, self-actualistion, diversity, inclusion and why sometimes an employee leaving your business is the right thing – for them and for you. As concern for wellbeing and mental health in the workplace become more normalised, Amy & Sam emphasize the need for companies to take a more holistic approach to the welfare of their employees, if they are to have a chance of surviving and thriving in the long term and also de-bunks some of the myths around managing millenials. “If you are aware of diversity in general across people, rather than simply their ages, you are going to foster a culture where everybody feels included.” Listen out for Amy’s ‘airbag story’ and why self-actualistion is as relevant for business teams as it is for individuals. For this and more, tune into this self-actualising podcast!
