UK workers may be the most disengaged in Western Europe, according to a study by management consultants Hay. 

UK workers may be the most disengaged in Western Europe, according to a study by management consultants Hay. 

The study of 3,000 workers in France, Germany, Holland, Spain and the UK found that 51% of UK workers described themselves as ‘unwilling to ‘go the extra mile’ for their firms—and/or frustrated by an inability to do their job effectively [owing] to poor resources, processes and procedures’.

Hay says companies with the highest employee engagement and enablement rates grow 4.5 times faster than others and 82% of senior executives view disengaged employees as one of the three most significant problems for their business.

Graeme Yell, director at Hay Group, said: "Employee engagement is understandably vulnerable after two years of recession and uncertainty, and disengaged employees can have a detrimental effect on a business’ bottom line.

"Companies must act to safeguard and maximise engagement levels among their staff or risk suffering financially and losing key talent."
