Employee engagement report: The £60bn question

This report is for workforce management leaders who want to get a true understanding of the challenges, opportunities and costs of staff engagement in UK organisations. It contains the thoughts of the people* who really matter – the HR professionals, Operations/Line of Business managers, and the employees themselves, who deliver the work on the shop floor of UK PLC.

A staggering £60bn is how much UK businesses say they are wasting every year on unnecessary admin and tasks that are not directly related to their employees’ core jobs. Technology – often touted as the cure – is having an impact, but not always a positive one. Of course, treating people as an asset rather than a commodity is essential for true workforce engagement. However, this is often easier said than done, as the findings show. View your report to learn:
