Employers must do more to engage their workforce

Comment on National Sickie Day
Employers must do more to engage their workforce
The first Monday in February is National Sickie Day. In response to the ELAS data on sickness leave, Dave Fleming, Sales Director at Badenoch & Clark, comments on how employers should aim to engage their workforce.
In order to alleviate the problem of employees pulling sickies, we would encourage employers to focus on motivating and engaging their workforce. Over the past two years, economic uncertainty has put enormous pressure on UK workers. Now it is up to employers to foster an environment in which their employees feel their contributions are valued.
Badenoch & Clarks recent Employment Study highlighted issues of low morale amongst UK workers. As many as one in ten (10.35%) UK workers named their primary motivation for going to work as spiralling debt, while a fifth (21.9%) identified routine alone as the reason they go to work in the morning.
Now the upturn is upon us, employers should turn their attention to their loyal workforce, and show how much their hard work is appreciated."
