New research from global employee engagement company, Reward Gateway, has revealed the top three HR priorities for 2019: increasing workplace productivity, increasing employee engagement and increasing employee retention.

The research, which surveyed 500 HR professionals across the UK, also found that a further 86% of HR professionals agreed that employee engagement would improve if their workforce had the technology to recognise one another on an ongoing basis.

But when it comes to connecting employees, HR has an even bigger obstacle to overcome with an increase of disparate and mobile workforces. Indeed, data from the Office of National Statistics (ONS) shows that the number of UK workers who work remotely continues to see a steady increase year on year. In addition, Google estimated 3 billion people globally perform work away from a desk every day across a variety of industries.

The research comes as Reward Gateway launches its Connect+ App: an industry first, employee engagement mobile app aimed at connecting employees with real-time access to employee recognition and communications.
