Businesses still missing the mark with employee engagement
Only a tenth of UK employees feel engaged at work, according to new research, while a fifth are actively disengaged.
The report stressed that UK businesses need to do more to account for the preferences of their young millennial workforce. Businesses are not focusing enough on employee’s expectation of work and the speed that technology is changing the world of work.
Improved employee engagement makes for better sales and improved customer service; but the research demonstrated that it is only the really enlightened businesses that take it seriously enough to invest heavily in this area. Businesses need to ask their workforce for honest feedback and then apply it to make positive changes. This will lead to improved productivity and better staff retention. 121 can help design and implement an employee engagement survey in your business.
