Happy Birthday to Us

10Eighty is five years old. Which seems a good moment to pause and celebrate, we’ve come a long way, had a lot of fun and we never stop learning, we love to learn.

In our first five years we’ve worked with a lot of smart, interesting people on a lot of challenging assignments and exciting opportunities. We’ve run some great programmes, provided some excellent training courses, helped a number of clients find new roles and did some great work coaching and mentoring. Alongside that our staff and associates did some challenging voluntary work, raised money for charity and pursued their studies. We like to keep busy.

Our name 10Eighty reflects the employee distribution curve, made up of three groups in a typical organisation:

  • 10% of highly talented individuals – we believe we can help you identify, attract and retain key talent;
  • 80% of employees are the bedrock of the business – we will increase their engagement and in return, your organisation’s profitability and effectiveness;
  • 10% of employees who are leaving the organisation for a variety of reasons including re-structuring, retirement, redundancy and poor performance – we can help you effect successful transitions.


Challenge, change and culture

At 10Eighty we believe that when we learn to approach challenges as opportunities, it means that we build optimism, self-confidence and open mindedness, work becomes an adventure and we look forward to whatever comes next. We focus on a strengths-based approach to getting the best from people in order to improve employee engagement as well as organisational profitability and customer satisfaction.

Employee engagement is a key area where we do a lot of work around organisational development and culture change, building values-based leadership development programmes so that managers learn to foster the behaviours needed to deliver on organisational objectives aligned to values and purpose.

The economic climate means organisations need to be increasingly flexible, agile and adaptable; organisational change is continuous so leadership and quality people management skills are critical.

Facing the future

The workforce and the workplace are changing and competitive organisations need to harness the ability to network and collaborate if they are to be successful. Technology, globalisation, changing demographics and expectations about work and reward are driving innovative new ways of working and 10Eighty are proud to help their clients build organisations that are fit to face the future.

At 10Eighty we believe in sharing knowledge and expertise, over the years we’ve produced a number of white papers on a range of subjects including creativity, career agility, career engagement, employee retention and values in the context of employee engagement. Please take a look at our current white papers and download any that catch your eye.

We’re not just looking back over the past five years we’re looking forward to a great future. 10Eighty may have started small but we’re planning big and seeking out opportunities to build, collaborate and learn. Happy birthday to us!
