While 30% of nearly 600 employers surveyed by Towers Watson report that employees are less engaged in the organization than before the financial crisis, another 28% of employers believe employee engagement has actually risen during the recession.

For 2010, far more companies expect engagement to rise (39%) than decline (5%). And 55% of employers agree that employee productivity has risen. That’s also part of the reason for slower hiring and more caution about increased investments in workforce programs.
