Businesses beginning to improve engagement in the workplace

Published:

According to a recent survey by a leading insurance company, employee engagement is beginning to improve in the workplace after years of employees voicing complaints about this issue.

The survey found career opportunities, employee recognition and organizational reputation management are a few of the best ways businesses can improve their employee engagement practices.

"Business leadership as well as HR programs that meet the needs of specific employee segments contributed to the uptick in engagement levels," said Pete Sanborn, co-president of Global Compensation and Talent at an insurance company. "However, with one out of every four people not engaged worldwide, more needs to be done."

Employee perception has improved since the insurance company's previous survey, with 61 percent seeing effective leadership at the business/unit division while 53 percent of survey respondents said people within their company and human resources practices are creating a positive work environment.

While business leaders and their employees are beginning to form better relationships, there are times when relationships turn sour in the workplace. By purchasing the relevant business insurance, companies can protect themselves from dissenting employees or former employees who may take their employers to court.
