Investors in People has released new research which reveals that nearly 47% of the UK workforce is looking to move jobs in 2018, and poor management is the biggest reason why (49%).
What does that mean for your organisation?
- Opportunity to attract disgruntled employees from competitors because you have an engaged and positive management team?
- Risk of people walking out of your door because of poor management?
IIP CEO Paul Devoy comments: “In a year where unemployment has reached its lowest level since 1975, but wages have stagnated, the improvements to the labour market have failed to translate to the pockets of UK workers. With research suggesting that employee disengagement costs the UK economy £340 billion annually, bad leadership is eroding UK productivity. With 49% of workers citing poor management as the main reason they’re considering looking for a new job next year, management strategies must evolve to meet the demands of employees if organisations are to retain staff.”
