The National Institute for Healthcare (NIHR) commissioned IES in partnership with Kent Business School, Warwick Business School and the University of Tilburg, to conduct a review of the evidence on Staff Engagement within the NHS. The project resulted in a series of publications, all hosted on the NIHR website.

The Guide to Engagement for Line Managers focuses on the key role of first level supervisors and line managers. The guide highlights their important role of developing staff engagement within their teams, which is fundamental for organisational engagement. In particular it includes ideas for how line managers can develop their engagement skills.
