Workplaces have changed amidst the turmoil of the pandemic, with lots of employees ditching the commute and working from home. How has this changed the way they engage with their workplaces and colleagues?
We invited Dr Scarlett Brown on behalf of Pure Executive, to review and analyse the results from the Best Employer Eastern Region 2021 survey. The latest fascinating findings from the 2021 survey showed many changes in employee engagement levels. Compared to findings from 2018, we can see how rapidly these shifts have taken place and assess what they mean for the modern workplace.
The results help emphasise how vital it is for employers to focus on actively engaging with their people and show that employees in the Eastern region don’t always need to be present in the office to stay engaged with their work.
