Most employees ‘engaged’ at work despite economic uncertainty

A new online study has found that 87% of employees describe themselves as being ‘engaged’ at work. Of this number, 30% of employees say that they are ‘highly engaged’.

The research, which features UK-based workers and was carried out by HR consultancy ETS, confounds suggestions elsewhere that employee engagement is low.

This view is backed up by broader ETS survey trends data featuring 680,000 employees. The scores for key measures of engagement – willingness to put in discretionary effort, advocacy of employer and intention to stay – remain at a high level, offering further encouragement:

  • 90% of employees willing to ‘go the extra mile’ for their employer
  • 81% would recommend their employer as a ‘great place to work’
  • 85% intend to still be working for their employer in a year’s time.

Employees taking part in the online study were also asked what single thing their employer could do to increase employee engagement. Leadership and feeling work is valued were themes that reoccurred:

  • 36% said better leadership
  • 31% said greater appreciation for good work
  • 16% said better pay and benefits.
