The final term of the school year is synonymous with exhaustion, stress and burn out. Staff in many schools go into survival mode. This reduces their engagement as they battle to get through to Christmas.
According to the Employee Engagement Report from BlessingWhite, fewer than 1 in 3 employees worldwide (31%) are engaged and nearly 1 in 5 (17%) are actually disengaged.
Staff engagement is VITAL in all organisations, especially schools. In difficult, challenging times, when significant changes are being implemented, accountability has increased and schools are expected to do more with less, the engagement of staff is EVEN more important.
The fastest way to really engage staff and boost morale is to find out what frustrates them and fix whatever we can. This is especially important at this time of the year. The information that is collected should be used to inform school planning and setting budget priorities for 2016.
Our interactive staff survey does this quickly and easily. You not only get a report that provides a benchmark of staff satisfaction, you also receive information on specific issues and concerns that can lead to actionable steps.
