Compelling new evidence on how employee engagement impacts the bottom line has been released this week.
Engage for Success, the government-sponsored industry-led movement, has published an update to its 2012 The Evidence report.
It contains 10 robust case studies from organisations that include M&S, Cineworld and Serco. Each demonstrates a direct link between employee engagement and their business performance.
Maplin reports £1 million more growth in year-on-year sales in the 50 per cent of stores that managed engagement better while The Co-operative Group describes an average £14,000 sales difference between stores in the top and bottom quartiles of engagement.
To tie in with the release of The Evidence Update Report, Headlines – which has been part of the guru group advising Engage for Success since 2011 – has created an infographic sharing the report’s highlights, which you can download a high-res version here.
The fact remains – only around a third of employees are highly engaged and productivity is lower in the UK than in other G7 countries.
The report shares practical advice on how to approach the topic of engagement and build a business case that could make a real difference.
