|Employee pride drops over first half of year|

According to research from Hyphen, the recruitment solutions provider, as little as two-fifths of British employees feel proud of the company they work for.
This summer’s events, including the Olympics and the Jubilee, seemed the perfect opportunity to ‘engage staff and inject some fun into otherwise gloomy trading conditions,’ says Hyphen.
On the other hand, despite the drop in employee pride, a recent poll has shown that nine out of ten workers believe that their role contributes towards the success of their organisation. Over two thirds feel that their managers believe they can work to the best of their ability.
Zain Wadee, managing director at Hyphen, says: ‘It is concerning to see that employees have lost pride in their organisations, but it is unsurprising that employees are finding it difficult to feel committed to their work when many firms are stretching workers thin to cut costs.’
