That is the opinion of Rory MacNeill, managing director of ORC International's Employee Research division, who said that too many companies are neglecting to spend time improving the satisfaction levels of their workers.
It comes after an ORC report showed that 43 per cent of UK staff believe there is a positive relationship between management and staff in their organisation, compared with 56 per cent in the US.
When asked to respond to how well managed the organisation is as a whole, 48 per cent of UK employees were positive, compared with 56 per cent in the US.
Mr MacNeill said this year's results show that good management continues to play a key role in driving employee engagement up.
"Effective leadership has led to positive scores in US organisations, but employers in the UK must look at their approaches and put measures in place to improve perceptions of management," he added.
