Engagement & Retention Report - UK 2020

Download Resource

The UK has a well-recognised productivity problem. According to McKinsey, output per capita in the UK is 40 per cent behind the US and 20 per cent behind Germany, with the root cause considered to be poor labour productivity.

Many of the causes of low labour productivity are outside of individual companies’ control. But, as British companies seek to increase their competitiveness after leaving the European Union, it is critical that they do all they can to get the best out of employees and to keep
their best employees in place.

Achievers recently conducted surveys of employees in the UK, United States, Belgium, the Netherlands and Ireland to try and understand employee engagement levels and appetite for new opportunities in each country, and to assess the main factors impacting these. This Engagement & Retention report summarises and interrogates the results of these surveys.

Key findings in this report include:

  • Britain is 15 per cent less productive per employee than the average of its EU competitors.

  • Just 19 per cent of UK employees are planning to look for a new job.

  • Nearly 1 in 10 said that wanting more recognition would be the major driver for considering a switch.
