‘Business Leaders must raise the bar on employee engagement as increasing workplace engagement is vital to achieve sustainable growth and retaining staff…..‘ Gallup
Research regularly shows that employee engagement has risen to become a key issue on the agenda of senior management. For example, in their Human Capital Survey of 2016, Deloitte find that:
- Employee retention and engagement together are the second most pressing issues on the minds of Global HR professionals – second only to developing leadership skills in their organisations
- 76% of workers are not engaged at work – this means they lack motivation and are unlikely to invest any time in their work other than the contracted minimum
- Only 54% would recommend their company as a place to work.
