Research on the Competencies of Employee Engagement within South African Small, Medium and Micro Enterprises

ZUG, SWITZERLAND, February 2, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — Monarch is happy to announce the recently authorised research proposal by PhD in Business Research and Leadership Candidate Ms. Kerstin Jatho addressing leadership competencies and employee engagement in South African small, medium and micro enterprises (SMME’s).

It is well accepted that employee engagement is critical in driving organisational success. Leadership styles, behaviours, and competencies are vital in shaping employee engagement levels. Organisations need engaged employees to achieve business growth, market share, and competitive advantage. It is understood that In South Africa, small, medium, and micro enterprises help to drive economic development, contributing greatly to the country’s Gross Domestic Product as well as labour force. However, South Africa’s low employee engagement levels hinder effective decision-making, talent retention, productivity, and business expansion, affecting the performance and sustainability of small, medium, and micro enterprises.

The research aims to develop a conceptual framework that explores the impact of leadership competencies on employee engagement in South African SMME’s. The findings of the research will contribute to knowledge, theory, and practice by providing insights into the relationship between leadership competencies, such as: followership, power dynamics and organisational justice, and employee engagement within South African SMME’s. It is anticipated that the resulting conceptual framework may help guide leaders and organisations to develop effective strategies to enhance employee engagement and drive organisational performance. The research has implications for managing and developing employees in small, medium, and micro enterprises, and broader considerations for improving overall employee engagement in South Africa.
