Research carried out by Badenoch & Clark shows that 48 per cent of UK workers are proud to work in their organisation, while nearly nine in ten think that their role contributes towards the success of their company.
The poll of 1,000 UK staff showed that three-quarters think that their co-workers seek their opinion and listen to and respect their views, while 71.5 per cent feel that their managers empower them to do their job to the best of their ability.
Younger workers aged between 16 and 24 were found to be particularly enthused, with more than eight in ten drawing a direct link between strong management and workplace engagement.
Nicola Linkleter, managing director at Badenoch & Clark, said employee engagement can and should be seen as a measure of strong management and good internal communication.
"The UK will emerge from the economic downturn at a faster rate if workers are more engaged in their work. As such, leaders must now place engagement at the heart of their broader strategy," she explained.
