CIPD: Employee engagement rises in voluntary sector

Employee engagement has risen in the voluntary sector, a new study indicates, with more than half of staff saying they felt engaged at work, compared to just 41 per cent last quarter.

Research from the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development underlined this higher level of engagement despite increased redundancy prospects in voluntary organisations. 

Indeed, 25 per cent of those surveyed are planning lay-offs - a figure which is up 15 per cent on the previous three-month period. 

The institute’s latest Employee Outlook survey also found that just 37 per cent of private sector staff and 33 per cent of public sector employees felt engaged at work. 

Claire McCartney, research adviser at the CIPD, cited quality management as a significant contributor to these high levels of job satisfaction. 

“The data from the voluntary sector gives us some hints on how to engage staff through leadership – at all levels of the organisation – and provides good practice that both the private and public sectors can learn from,” she said.

Thomsons Online Benefits demonstrates how an effective employee engagement programme can help you to achieve real value for every pound you spend on reward.
