The UK has an employee commitment shortfall. Surveys report that only round one third of UK employees state they are engaged. No wonder that increasing worker commitment is seen as a major concern by UK managers. In the CBI Harvey Nash review (July 2012) securing higher employee commitment was the top workforce priority for UK organisations. The Head of the Civil Service recognised gaining increased commitment among public sector workers is a priority.
Organisations often develop engagement policies yet another example of doing something thing too employees rather than understanding motivation.
