Employee Outlook

Employee Outlook Banner

Employee Outlook, produced in partnership with Halogen, is produced twice a year: spring and autumn.

The headline finding from our Employee Outlook spring 2016 survey, is a worrying drop in job satisfaction and at the same time an increase in the number of employees currently looking for a new job.

Employers need to take note of these changes and of the areas of working life that could potentially be improved. Employee motivation at work for instance seems to be lacking with almost as many disagreeing as agreeing ‘this organisation really inspires the very best of me in the way of job performance.’ There has also been an increase in the number of employees believing that their performance management processes are somewhat or not at all fair.'

Employee Outlook: Focus on commuting and flexible working

The report calls for employers to recognise the business case for increasing the use of flexible working which can be a win–win for both the organisation and the individual. The role of senior and line managers in shaping organisational culture and enabling more flexible ways of working are key to unlocking the full potential of flexible working.

'The use of flexible working has a big impact on employees’ attitudes to
work–life balance, with 65% of flexible workers satisfied or very satisfied
with their work–life balance compared with 47% of employees who don’t work flexibly.'
