A review of literature and practice clearly shows that managers impact employee engagement and well-being. It is important for managers to understand how to manage their teams in ways that will enhance engagement and well-being, and prevent and reduce stress.
This research, funded by the CIPD and led by Affinity Health at Work through a consortium of employers and other stakeholders, brings together two existing frameworks of management behaviour to create a single combined framework of management competencies and behavioural indicators to support employers and managers in achieving sustainable employee engagement.
Based on a questionnaire approach, the framework can help managers to identify where their behaviours are appropriate and where they may need to be changed, and can help employers to support managers in making the relevant behaviours an integral part of their management approach.
A guidance leaflet briefly setting out the framework and how it can be used is also available.
