Two-thirds of all workers 'unengaged'
Reports suggest that almost two-thirds of all UK workers are unengaged with their current work, sparking fears over the threat of increased staff turnover among UK employees.

Reports from the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) show that 35 per cent of employees are engaged with their work, meaning that the majority are lacking engagement.

This comes in light of research showing that engaged workers perform better in general and are far less likely to leave their jobs. Mike Emmott, CIPD employee relations adviser, recommends that employers do more to engage their staff.

"Our recent research clearly shows how much management practice affects people's attitudes towards their work," he said according to Pay Per Shop.

"With only three in ten employees engaged, many managers evidently aren't doing enough to keep their staff interested."

In related news, former education secretary Alan Johnson has announced a decline in the number of unskilled jobs in the UK, making it more difficult for those without qualifications to find engaging work.
