Third of UK workforce looking for new jobs
London, December 9 (ANI): As many as a third of all British workers are on the lookout for new job opportunities while more than half are confused about their career progression, according to a new research.
The research from business performance consultants Lane4 also claimed that more than three quarters of employees say their bosses don't communicate with them effectively, the Daily Mail reported.
And nearly nine in 10 reported that they don't get the training and guidance required for their role from management while over half don't feel they are being communicated to clearly about their own career progression, the study found.
More than three quarters also said their company does not communicate to them effectively, leaving them wanting to know more about the organisation they work for, according to the study of 1,500 UK employees.
A lack of appreciation within the workplace is also a problem with almost half of workers reporting that their current workplace doesn't celebrate - or even communicate - company successes, which would have a positive effect on staff morale if successes were marked more often.
And it could be inter-office relations that lead to communication breakdowns throughout the business, as over a third of workers reported poor dynamics in their team.
Olympic Gold medalist and Lane4's managing director Adrian Moorhouse is calling on business leaders to develop a line of sight between the visions and strategies created by senior management and their people.
"Ineffective communication between employees and management has serious consequences on both morale and performance," the paper quoted Moorhouse as saying.
"With over three-quarters of workers reporting they don't feel like they're being communicated to by their senior management, there's a real opportunity for business leaders to develop a line of sight between the visions and strategies created by senior levels.
"This will ultimately help to drive employee engagement, which we know has a direct impact on business results," he added. (ANI)
