Senior employees and HR managers are waiting until the economy improves before looking to move on to pastures new, it has been claimed.

A study conducted by consulting firm BlessingWhite found that many are simply waiting until the economy improves before seeking new opportunities.

Fewer than half of those surveyed thought they had a future with their current employers, reports HR Magazine.

Some 35 per cent of managers and others in senior roles are only staying in their jobs because of the unstable economic climate.

Zoe Allen, BlessingWhite's marketing manager, said companies need to create a culture of engagement, by delivering authentic communication.

"Making employees engaged with the company must come from the higher levels of the company," she suggested.

"Senior managers need to work with their teams to spot disengaged employees and implement tools to fix it."

But Kate Jennings, managing director at BlessingWhite, warned that many managers lack the confidence to deal with disengaged staff.

She said it is important to find out what motivates such individuals.

Of those employees reporting higher levels of engagement, almost half said they stay in their role because of the enjoyment they get from what they do.

And where development and advancement opportunities are available, this may encourage them to get their heads down and work hard.
