You’re Not Really An Engaged Employee Until You’ve Got A Company Tattoo?


Wow. This blog post talks of a company where staff are actually getting their bodies inked to show to the world that they belong with, and have loyalty to, their company. Previously the domain of organised crime and motorcycle gangs, this is an interesting development. Perhaps in the future we’ll all have barcodes on our foreheads and microchips in our wrists? (Personally I’m OK with a GPS in my body. Even I’m not entirely sure where I am much of the time.)

The blog is a little bit tongue in cheek and presumably the tongue is pierced. The company in question is also offering a range of employee-friendly benefits including health, so if the tatts ever get infected, that base is covered.

I haven’t read the full article yet. Whether it’s engagement and loyalty or something completely opposite I suppose depends on where on their body the tattoo gets put?

About Terry Williams - The Brain-Based Boss

I'm all about engaging people and helping you engage yours to influence behaviour to improve results - at work and at home. Maybe you're a manager, a salesperson, a leader, a parent, a presenter or an event organiser? You need to grab your people's attention, create some rapport, be memorable and influence behaviour change. How can we do that? I'm originally a trainer by trade, turned manager, turned comedian and partway back again. Author of 'THE GUIDE: How to kiss, get a job & other stuff you need to know', I write and speak about how to engage people, be they employees, family or yourself. How can we connect with people’s own internal motivations and help them use their own inner passions to drive towards productivity, success and happiness? And hopefully have a few laughs along the way... As a trainer facilitating learning and development in others, I find myself drawing on my own extensive business experience. I specialise in the delivery of high impact, customised training solutions for organisations that are serious about improving the performance and lives of their people.
