Show #237: Employee Engagement Research in the Construction Industry
Special Guest: Kate Cooper, Head of Research at the Institute of Leadership and Management
Engage for Success is about to publish a short report conducted by the Leadership and Engagement Thought and Action Group (TAG) on behalf of the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB).
The research investigated links leadership with engagement in two large firms within the construction industry and highlights practical steps that can be taken in further developing engagement within these organisations and others in the industry.
Key factors associated with high levels of engagement were shared / distributed leadership, the ability of managers to maintain team direction and the ability to manage team boundaries.
The findings within the report consequently allow us to draw on recent research by the CITB into distributed leadership in construction SMEs to further support the need for construction industries to develop practical ways to heighten leadership and engagement in and across organisations.
Join us as we discuss the research findings in more detail.
