Highly engaged staff are more likely to be late for work, do personal tasks during working hours such as online shopping and checking social media accounts, and work from home, according to a report launched this week.
What’s killing UK productivity reveals that highly engaged staff have regular short breaks during working hours, however when they do sit down to work they are more focused, work longer hours and are more productive than those with low engagement.
Bill Alexander, CEO of Red Letter Days for Business, said:
“Employees who enjoy more flexibility on timekeeping at work as well as where they work are more engaged, work longer hours and are more productive. Highly engaged staff spend more time at work on personal tasks than staff with low engagement levels because they believe a break away from their work every now and then is a good thing. All staff should be given more autonomy and be able to self-govern their job roles.”
