Research demonstrates that higher levels of employee engagement are linked to better talent outcomes i.e. individual performance, which in turn are linked postively to organisational performance

“Decades of data have confirmed that higher employee engagement, or the strength of the mental and emotional connection an employee feels toward their workplace, has many positive benefits — including reduced stress, improved health and job satisfaction, as well as increased productivity, job retention, and profitability.” (Peart, 2019)

A recent report by Glint and LinkedIn Learning (2021) looked how managers are doing and how their jobs are changing. They identified four key takeaways

  1. Despite the all-consuming challenges of a global pandemic, employee engagement among managers rose 5% in 2020

  2. But there’s reason to worry: between Q1 and Q4 of 2020, manager burnout increased 78%

  3. Today’s managers face important new priorities: supporting well-being, remote and hybrid teams, and workplace learning

  4. One priority stands out as a powerful force for good: belonging. Employees who felt a sense of belonging in 2020 were 5.2x more likely to be engaged

As increased demands are placed on managers to support well-being, remote and hybrid teams, and workplace learning, we asked ourselves “who is supporting the managers to respond to these demands?”

Laser coaching can support managers not only in responding to these demands, but make them more enabled and empowered leaders, as they do so.

Providing this on-demand support to managers builds commitment, which builds a sense of belonging, which in turn builds engagement.
