Following the publication of “Engagement through CEO Eyes” in 2013, the Barriers TAG have commissioned the largest ever UK study of barriers to team engagement.
The joint study, from Engage for Success, Ashridge Executive Education and Oracle, challenges conventional thinking about the way engagement is measured and suggests that teams are often nowhere near as engaged as their organisations think they are.
The study shows that only a quarter of UK teams are giving their best at work, while almost a third (32 per cent) are actively disengaged.
The report is based on a study of 195 participants from 28 teams across seven industry sectors. Organisations in the study varied from SMEs to UK-based multi-nationals, from sectors ranging from Government and aviation to chemicals and healthcare.
