Leadership motivation is increasingly important in businesses after a survey has revealed that one-third of workers believe their standard of working has fallen over the last six months.
According to the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), only ten per cent of workers feel their working environment has improved.
This dip in employee motivation is as a result of almost half (46 per cent) revealing their pay had been frozen and seven per cent experiencing a pay cut.
Ben Willmott, senior public policy adviser at the CIPD, said that employers need to "deliver consistently high quality leadership and management".
"How managers communicate, consult and coach and develop staff is critical," he said.
"Employers need to find cost effective ways of equipping their line managers with the people management skills to support employee engagement and wellbeing."
He added that businesses should involve staff in major reorganisations, as leadership motivation is important in "pulling together to deliver future success".
Last week, the Institute of Employment Studies said that public sector cuts, news of big banking bonuses and youth unemployment had led staff to feel "de-motivated and undervalued".
