The success of a business is greatly dependent on the efficiency of the employees. The relationship of the people in an organisation will determine the kind of outcome that they will produce as a team. This is the reason why it is also very important for every business owner, manager and supervisor to examine the kind of atmosphere in the office. One has to be sensitive to the needs of the people he or she is managing. Teamwork is only possible if everyone is comfortable with the company of the other.
According to a recent study, employee engagement across the workforce is at a historic low. Many employees cite disengagement with the work they are tasked to perform each day, due to a variety of underlying causes. It could be they are not content with their current job position, or that they do not feel completely connected with the employer on a broader scale. Regardless of the root cause, employers and their HR departments are recognising the pressing need to improve employee engagement – and fast.
