Over half (51%) of UK business decision makers are worried about productivity in the workplace, with 74% showing at least some concern as we move into the next stages of the Covid crisis according to new ‘How to Grow’ playbook by business transformation consultancy Agility in Mind.
The findings are from a poll of UK business leaders, which showed that three in five business leaders believe it will be harder to engage the hearts and minds of employees within their organisations. In addition, some 29% of these same leaders did not know how to determine new initiatives that might tackle the issue of engagement and collaboration, with 27% saying they lacked the time to pursue such initiatives at all.
The research did show an aspiration to find solutions, with 85% of senior decision makers wishing to explore new ways to improve employee productivity, engagement, and motivation, even if some lacked clarity on how this process should take place. A further 45% thought this to be either critical to future success of their business or should be a key business priority moving forward.
