The UK faces an employee engagement deficit. At both a macro and a micro level, this matters: Britain is 15% less productive per employee than the average of its EU competitors and productivity over the last decade has grown a paltry 1.4% over the whole period.
Repeated studies have shown that one of the most effective ways of improving productivity, without requiring significant capital investment or upskilling, is to improve employee engagement. Building a workforce that is engaged in their work has been shown to increase revenues, boost profits, and enhance customer satisfaction.
