Abstract

International sports which created a zealous audience across the globe, had gradually acquired the status of an industry having numerous associated industrial activities. With the rise in popularity of various sporting events held at regular intervals, employee productivity in the organisations was impacted during such events. It was important to manage the factors affecting employee engagement and productivity across the different time zones of the world, especially during major sports tournaments. The approach to employee engagement incorporated the concept of employee wellbeing for business development and increased organisational productivity. It was essential for employers to draw maximum workforce productivity, particularly during major sporting events. Such events were also a great opportunity towards building employee morale and encouraging team spirit. Though it was not possible to measure employee productivity during the FIFA World Cup, such events led to social unification both culturally and economically while it developed strong bonds between different communities. Sports also inspired employees to follow the rules while formulating winning strategies. In this context, it remained to be seen whether organisations would be able to succeed in maintaining employee engagement and motivation to achieve the goals of productivity during the FIFA World Cup 2014.
