As Brexit (potentially) reaches its endgame over the coming days, the prospects for the UK economy remain uncertain. A sustained squeeze on household incomes has been seen given that Britain’s inflation rate only fell below the Bank of England’s 2 per cent target for the first time in two years in January.
In a speech delivered at Imperial College Business School on Monday 11th March, Michael Saunders External Member of the Bank of England Monetary Policy Committee reflected that the economy has grown at a “modest” pace by historical norms, as uncertainty weighs on business investment and consumer confidence.
This uncertainty for business decision makers in recent times has been well covered. But there has been less exploration of the interaction between the personal financial circumstances of employees and their workplace experiences. In response, the Voice of the Employee team at BMG Research have added a number of questions on this subject to our monthly online omnibus survey. Look out for the results which will be published by the end of March.
The BMG Voice of the Employee team continue to work across a diverse range of employee engagement projects, with the last few weeks having seen the delivery of key messages to two London boroughs, a regulatory body and one of London’s most renowned providers of conservation and scientific expertise. The team are also in the preparatory phase for two major pieces of employee research on behalf central government bodies, both of which will have truly global reach.
If you wish to discuss any project in which you wish to understand the voice of your employees please contact Simon Maydew (Executive Director) firstname.lastname@example.org or Steve Handley (Research Director) email@example.com who would be happy to discuss how our full range of services could be of benefit to your organisation.
