Talking to a gathering of HR experts at a recent CBI South West HR Forum, including HR chiefs from Hays, Bristol Water and Pittards, Lisa suggested that employees and their managers often have very different ideas about what motivates and engages a workforce.

Citing research from industry community Cite HR, she said that when a sample of the two groups were asked to list employment factors in order of importance, the responses proved to be almost polar opposites.

Management believe their eomployees to be largely motivated by monetary factors, whereas employees cite non-monetary factors like respect, training and feedback.
