Workforce management systems can help employees improve their productivity
Workforce management systems can help employees improve their overall productivity, which should be one of their main concerns, considering that unemployment is set to soar quickly in 2018, according to a recent report by Gartner.
The CEB Global Talent Monitor reveals that the levels of discretionary effort have dropped to the lowest point in six years with just one-in-seven (15 per cent) workers applying extra effort in their jobs.
Furthermore, data from the study points out that employees are unhappy with virtually every aspect of their current job – rewards, opportunities, employer, people and work – and levels of satisfaction are at an all-time low. A growing number of workers are leaving their employers because of poor people management (37 per cent) and cite it as a major shortcoming in the organisation.
“Employees are not working as hard as they could be, for two reasons. Firstly, they don’t believe it’s in their interest to do so. There is no incentive for working harder – it doesn’t earn them more money and they face no immediate consequences for coasting or poor performance,” said Brian Kropp, HR practice leader at CEB, now Gartner. “Secondly, managers are underutilising, and in some cases overlooking, the skills and experience in their current teams. It’s not that workers themselves are indolent, they’re just not being challenged or stretched. As a result, engagement levels have dissipated, and their productivity and job satisfaction now suffers.”
