The engagement challenge
Organisations are not performing at their best. Employees feel increasingly less supported and fulfilled. UKPLC is losing £billions through rising staff sickness and staff turnover costs. As austerity bites, the focus on relationships tends to dry up and this causes a myriad of issues.
Employee engagement can be a key driver for employee motivation, satisfaction and performance especially when used in conjunction with an engagement survey. It can inform strategies and policy and help find some of the bigger questions that can unlock performance.
In our powerfully engaging seminar, we strip down engagement to its core components and reboot employee engagement through supporting individuals to understand, utilise and build upon their own innate engagement potential. This provides a great platform for sustainable engagement and increased productivity.

Inside Track on Engagement
What is employee engagement?
"It's when employees enjoy their work, know how it impacts their organisation and strive to perform for themselves and their organisation. There is a synergy through shared values and purpose
” EQworks 2012.
Lack of engagement costs £B’s
6 million UK workers are actively dissatisfied with their job (24%). With dissatisfaction comes increased levels of stress (65% of UK workers more stressed and prone to illness than 3 years ago).
Lack of engagement causes stress & high staff turnover
Stress is now the single biggest cause of sickness absence. Sickness Absence costs the UK $16.8 billion a year and indirect costs stand at $8 billion a year. Inefficiency, poor management and staff turnover are unaccounted and monitored lack of engagement costs.
Is employee engagement a fashionable buzz-word?
In the past few years ‘employee engagement’ has become a buzz word with HR professionals and within leadership debates because of an increased awareness that without it, both employees and organisations suffer. As we become more aware and better measure its effects, we are seeking how to remedy and fulfil our work performance and fulfilment potential.
