Summary

Focuses on the issue of employee wellbeing and management strategies. According to a report by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, managers are more likely to motivate and retain employees if they ask employees what they want to do, if they take responsibility for things that go wrong, and if they regularly ask staff if they are doing well. These managerial behaviors improve employee engagement. If managers fail to pay attention to employee stress, it undermines employee motivation, health, and well-being.
