Founder & CEO, The Engagement Coach
The Engagement Coach was founded by Amrit Sandhar, who has worked with a number of well-known brands across the UK, to improve employee engagement/ experience, ultimately to improve organisational productivity. With a particular passion for neuroscience and psychology to drive behavioural change, combined with his experience in employee engagement, he uses a data-driven approach to identify the issues organisations are struggling with, and to work with them to create solutions leading to drive sustainable change. Amrit is a values-led individual who has a passion for developing people, as he believes highly engaged leaders drive better business performance by getting the best out of their colleagues.
Amrit originally started a career in healthcare as a qualified Pharmacist, and after spending a number of years in Operations, he went on to oversee half of the UK’s Pharmacy and Optical units for Walmart’s UK business, Asda. Having successfully worked in the healthcare sector, Amrit went on to head up Employee Engagement for Asda, before taking up a role with the prestigious Best Companies (the name behind The Sunday Times Best Companies list), working at boardroom level, helping organisations improve their employee engagement. Amrit is a qualified executive coach, a Walmart accredited change trainer, and has a CIPD Advanced Diploma (Level 7) in HRM/HRD.
Amrit is a happily married father of three children and lives in Warwickshire. He studied at Liverpool John Moore’s University as a Pharmacist and in his past he has worked as a ‘Special’ Constable with Warwickshire Constabulary.
