A workplace that achieves synchronicity between selling and experience at every touch point is more important than ever.

Research shows that every worker’s physiology and psychology is altered by the neurotransmissions their headspace produces – shaping each owner’s thoughts, heart and hands as they shift. With so many variables in the broader environment, we should focus on what we have full control over – workplace design.

However, workplaces for sales people areoften disabling rather than enabling, leading to disinterest and disengagement.

Gallup’s State of The Global Workplace Report (2013) revealed that across all job titles in Sub-Saharan Africa, sales people are the least engaged or motivated in the workplace (i.e. just 5% of sales people are engaged compared to mineworkers at 12%). By investigating the neuroscience behind human behaviour it’s easy to understand why.
