Employee Outlook

Employee Outlook Banner

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

The report highlights a need for organisations to consider how they can increase the amount of autonomy employees have at work to use their skills and ideas through more empowering leadership and line management, as well as improved job design.
'When asked what things help employees to be productive, top of the list is work
that they find interesting (40%) and being able to use their initiative (39%).'

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.'
