This quarterly survey of employee attitudes explores the fast-changing world of work and emerging challenges for individuals and policy-makers.

This report explores:

  • Job satisfaction and engagement
  • Employee attitudes towards managers
  • Focus on management development
  • Pressure at work
  • Work–life balance
  • Employee attitudes and the economic downturn
  • Job-seeking.

The focus section on line management capability and development explores what aspects of management behaviour support employee engagement. This finds a significant contrast in how managers rate themselves as managers and how they are rated by their employees. It also finds significant differences in perceptions between managers and employees over how often they meet one to one, and what issues they commonly talk about during these discussions.
