This Episode: Time To Revisit Engagement

Lucinda talks once more about engagement in light of the state of the global workforce and working methodologies being adopted globally. It’s time to revisit engagement!

Key Takeaways

  • Engagement is undeniably a leading indicator of productivity, profitability, health and safety issues, customer satisfaction and overall people happiness.
  • Global engagement levels are at 23%. European engagement levels are at 13%, and the UK (33rd in the list) have 10% engagement.
  • It’s hard to be engaged when you’re feeling high levels of stress. With the current financial hardships and the cost of living crisis, it can be almost impossible not to bring those worries to the workplace.
  • Remote working will have played a part in the lessening of engagement with each other. They are becoming more insular and isolated, leading to sense of not belonging to an organisation.
