'Turn employment on its head' to get the most from graduates

Published: Wednesday, 20 April 2011   Category: All Graduate job news

Businesses can get the most out of employees in graduate jobs by turning convention on its head, a business expert has claimed.

International speaker Roger Harrop said that changing the game is a great way to motivate employees.

Using the example of Microsoft's Holland offices, he explained how staff are only judged on the results they post at the end of the day.

Other than that, they are free to work the hours they want, when they want and from where they want.

"They travel how and when they like, stay at home when they want and spend time with their family," Mr Harrop explained.

"They are as a result the most productive Microsoft company in the world, with absenteeism and sickness both down."

He was speaking after research by the University of Bristol indicated that reducing the usage of cars on UK roads would help encourage physical activity among the UK workforce and improve general health.
