Employees 'must be engaged with the correct areas of work'
New research has highlighted the importance of managers ensuring that staff are kept engaged with the most relevant facets of their job.
Data collated by the Kingston Engagement Consortium on behalf of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) revealed that the locus of a worker's engagement can be as important as their overall engagement level.
For example, it was noted that staff are likely to be highly engaged with the job itself, as well as line managers and colleagues, while affinity with the overall organisation and individuals outside it was shown to be lower.
Angela Baron, engagement and organisational development adviser for the CIPD, said management staff must therefore recognise that engagement is "not static" if they wish to translate it into improved performance.
"Managers need to get behind the engagement score to really get to grips with what button to press to trigger employee engagement if they are to truly drive competitive advantage through their people," she added.
Earlier this week, Chartered Institute of Management Accountants member Mario Fonseka told Asian news publication the Daily Mirror that company-wide engagement is a key aspect of successful change management.
