Employee motivation and engagement
Our 19th annual survey of the HR function reports on key metrics for the profession, including the ratio of HR practitioners to employees and budgets for HR activities.
The response of the HR community to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has been to put people first, while also supporting business continuity during exceptional circumstances. It is unsurprising then, that wellbeing tops the priority poll for the profession for the coming year, coupled with employee engagement.
With the first frantic days of lockdown behind us, XpertHR asked HR practitioners about the challenges facing them and their organisations as the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues.
XpertHR research looks at employers' arrangements for managing the impact of major sporting events and other special events when they coincide with working hours.
XpertHR research examines the key factors that influence employee engagement and the most effective ways of measuring and improving it.
Levels of employee engagement may have increased in 40% of organisations over the past year but a total of 40% of organisations describe engagement levels as 'reasonable' at best, indicating there is room for improvement. XpertHR's survey considers the factors that help engage employees and identifies current trends in this area.
With 40% of organisations describing employee engagement levels as "reasonable" at best, there is a need for employers to consider how best to assess it at their organisation and adopt initiatives that could result in a more engaged workforce.
While organisations benefit from boosting levels of engagement, it is rarely a case of "one size fits all" when it comes to the methods used. It is worth considering the contrasting initiatives and channels that will appeal to different age groups.
