How John Paul Construction Improved Psychological Safety and Culture with PepTalk

John Paul Construction
With a rapidly expanding organisation, a fast paced environment and widely dispersed teams - it’s easy to lose that personable small business feel. PepTalk has enabled John Paul Construction to reconnect and see each other as someone's dad, mother, sister, brother and not just an employee.

Facts & Figures

John Paul Construction is founded on over 70 years of deep engineering knowledge and quality relationship management. They sustainably grow by empowering our people to work safely with a sense of responsibility, excellence and positive energy. Upholding their core values of excellence, respect and teamwork is what continually fuels this innovative organisation.

John Paul Construction kicked off their partnership with PepTalk in October 2021. Together we wanted to help them supercharge the awesome culture in the John Paul community. By focussing on teamwork, increasing the growth & development of their people and enhancing belonging through shared experiences we’ve achieved some remarkable results together.

"PepTalk has broken down barriers. The simple ability for people to be able to talk to each other and be in the moment"
Sara Warren,
BioNX Team, John Paul Construction

Before Partnering with PepTalk

The BioNX Team held individual/siloed activities outside of daily operations with a more social focus rather than a strategic, purposeful and measured approach to building a sense of belonging in the team.

After Partnering with PepTalk

When asked about the impact of PepTalk Team Tools, the BioNX team said: "PepTalk came at a perfect time! It's the perfect activity for forming and developing our team. PepTalk has broken down barriers and provided a safe space where vulnerability can be demonstrated".

PepTalk's TeamTalks, Check-Ins and engagement programs have enabled the team to see people as someone's dad, mum, brother, sister, friend and not just an employee. In such a fast-paced environment that human connection can be easily lost.

After building stronger lines of communication and encouraging open and honest conversation, the team are able to talk to each other and be in the moment.

There is also a volume of programmatic content available to act as support and information on some of the topics that may have surfaced from the TeamTalks and Team Check-Ins.

Since partnering with PepTalk, the BioNX team at John Paul Construction have not only improved communication and increased their team connection but they've also overcome the huge industry challenge of high turnover. The team have built strong team bonds based on a human-centric approach and have had ZERO turnover amongst their team.

“Since starting with PepTalk we’ve had no turnover in the team and we’re in a high turnover industry. Our team has each other's backs. Having that support is half the battle – it makes the overall experience of work better”
Sara Warren,
BioNX Team,John Paul Construction
