As psychologists we help organisations with, among other things, employee engagement and well-being. There is a ground-hog day experience for us with many clients – educating them of the wider impact of poor employee engagement/experience. So it was pleasing to see a summary research paper highlighting these ‘other issues’, such as the finding that the children of fathers who have poor working experiences have greater behavioural problems at school.
Which in itself then adds to the further distraction of the parent from their working commitments. I have the paper if you are interested. Just email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
The research article is interesting but equally worrying in terms of demonstrating the wider societal impact of having poor employee engagement experiences.
