News: Employees in small businesses are most engaged

unengaged workerEmployees are more engaged in smaller businesses, according to a new report.

A survey of over 2,000 employees by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development found that engagement hit a high of 60% in micro-businesses (businesses with 2-9 members of staff), which fell in larger companies.

In small businesses (10-49 employees), engagement reached 44% and in medium businesses (50-249 employees) the figure was 38%. In companies with more than 250 employees, the employee engagement rate was just 31%.

And it’s not just company size that affects engagement – it differs in industries too. Those in the voluntary sector had the highest engagement rate at 41%, with the private sector at 37% and the public sector dropping to just 27%.
