Evidence suggests that employee engagement has a positive and significant effect on organisations, and that managers are pivotal to engagement and well-being.

Research, funded by the CIPD and led by Affinity Health at Work through a consortium of employers and other stakeholders, has brought together two existing frameworks of management behaviours and competencies that enhance engagement and prevent and reduce employee stress. The resulting single can be used as a tool to help build sustainable employee engagement.

This guidance leaflet briefly sets out the framework, the background to its development and how it can be used. A full report including a literature review and more information on methodology, results and implications, is also available.
