Siblings team up to launch Engage & Grow Central Midlands

Employee engagement specialist Rachael Bull has teamed up with her brother and leading UK coach Matt Bull, to launch Engage & Grow in Central Midlands.

Engage & Grow is a global brand that focuses on re-engaging and re-energising workforces across the world, through bespoke group coaching programmes and workshops, operating in more than 80 countries. Its mission is to create a globally engaged workforce, one employee at a time.

After a successful career in journalism and public and private sector communications and engagement, Rachael became a certified coach and has joined her brother and managing director ActionCOACH Loughborough, Matt, to launch Engage & Grow.


Rachael said: “It’s fantastic to be teaming up with Matt to bring Engage & Grow to the Central Midlands. My previous roles have always centred around communication and engagement, but what drew me to the business was the focus on bringing leaders and employees together to decide what actions and behaviours will help the business succeed, actually putting it all into practice, and seeing results so quickly.


“Everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy what they do, we spend so much of our lives in the workplace and if people are coming to work demotivated and uninspired then neither the employee nor the employer will benefit.


“Part of Engage & Grow’s mission is to re-engage employees and help businesses enjoy the huge value and benefits of having an engaged workforce. You can’t grow and be successful with disengaged staff and I believe it’s something that every business needs to do. Companies not doing so are missing a trick – those with engaged employees enjoy 22% more profitability, as well as significantly lower staff turnover and great retention.” [1]


Matt said: “I’m really excited to be on this new venture with Rachael, combining my coaching experience with her employee engagement expertise. Our goal is to help leaders recognise the impact that having engaged staff can have on the business, through developing their leadership, communication and culture – all things that can easily be neglected. In fact, only 9% of the UK’s workforce is engaged. [2]


“Globally over the past decade, Engage & Grow has brought about an average of +257% engagement growth for SMEs and +361% engagement growth for corporates and governments – our goal is to bring that success to the region’s workplaces.”


Engage & Grow Central Midlands, which is based in Loughborough, works with organisations across Nottingham, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Warwickshire, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes. Programmes can be delivered, either in person or virtually.
