Just 32% of UK office workers feel as though they actually belong within their company, despite this being essential in order for employees to feel motivated and loyal, according to new research.
In fact, over a third claim they have no bond with their employer at all. Interestingly, men are marginally less likely to feel as though they truly belong, with just 31% feeling a sense of community, compared to 34% of women. However, the statistics are incredibly low for all workers. This is a significant issue for UK employers and one that is only set to worsen as millions of workers across Britain remain furloughed or working remotely, creating even more distance between them and their employer and thus increasing the risk of employee disengagement.
