Latest employee engagement figures from CIPD do not make great reading

The latest report from the Chartered Institute of Professional Development (Winter 2012/13 1) shows that 35% of employees are engaged but the majority (61%) remain neutral.  4% of respondents are disengaged.

 

In comparison to twelve months ago there is a very slight downward change, 36%, 60% and 3% respectively.

 

The summer of 2012 offered the high point in terms of overall employee engagementat 39% (with just 3% disengaged) but we now find that scores are now inline with Winter 11/12.

Daniel Watson's curator insight, December 5, 2012 6:19 AM


Business owners often struggle when it comes to delivering critical feedback to an employee, especially when aspects of the employees performance, leave much to be desired.


Unfortunately, if a business owner or manager wants their critical feedback to be accepted by the employee, the feedback must be direct and not be delivered as hints or polite requests for certain changes to take place.


This good article, suggests employees need to be told upfront what exactly the relevant issue is, and it then suggests three steps to take to ensure that the critical feedback is received appropriately and the message sinks in in a way that will result in the requested outcomes.


Bond Beebe Accountants & Advisors's curator insight, December 18, 2012 8:29 AM

Providing effective feedback is an essential skill for managers at every level.  As this piece suggests, offering concrete, detailed direction is key to employee success.

 

ThinDifference's curator insight, March 10, 2013 9:47 AM

Your body language shapes who you are

Using a few simple tweaks to body language, Harvard researcher Amy Cuddy discovers ways to help people become more powerful

 

Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves. Social psychologist Amy Cuddy shows how “power posing” -- standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don’t feel confident -- can affect testosterone and cortisol levels in the brain, and might even have an impact on our chances for success.
