Our CEO Tony Latter is delighted to be a part of the governments initiative to tackle employee engagement at The Department of Energy and Climate Change (The DECC).
The People Survey 2015 for DECC returned a slight 1% drop against the engagement index compared to 2014. Any drop in employee engagement, however small, is a worry because it can indicate staff are feeling less motivated, less engaged in their work and therefore less likely to ‘go the extra mile’. This can have a negative impact on individual, team and organisation performance and productivity.
Essential to identifying the interventions to improve employee engagement is understanding the barriers that make people feel that they are not engaged in their work, team or organisation. This is where Tony and his fellow peers aim to give clarity on what these barriers are.
