Closely allied to any change initiative is the need to create high levels of employee engagement. This is a journey that takes time, leadership and management commitment, and for many in leadership and management positions, an acceptance that you need to do things differently. You can have the best strategy, and great systems and processes, but without engaged employees, success will be elusive. The Global Perspectives Survey (ORC International) of more than 7,000 employees across 20 countries suggests UK employees have some of the lowest engagement with their jobs in the world. In fact, the UK placed 18th. In every category measured, UK employee engagement has decreased over the past 12 months. This means that there is a massive opportunity within organisations to make employee engagement a priority for success. When organisations strive towards having more engaged employees, they often only work with managers and forget about supporting the actual employees. We have therefore developed a distance learning programme on the subject of ‘Being an engaged employee.’ This, in conjunction with our employee engagement programme for managers, means that every piece of the employee engagement puzzle is in place.
