Job dissatisfaction at a high due to poor communication from management, says Lane4


Nearly nine in 10 of the UK workforce have reported they don’t get the training and guidance required for their role from management, leading to a high rate of job dissatisfaction, according to research published today by performance management company Lane4.

The research found that over half of workers (57%) don't believe they are being communicated to clearly about their own career progression.

The study of 1,500 UK employees found that more than three quarters (78%) of staff also feel their company does not communicate to them effectively, leaving them wanting to know more about the organisation they work for.

It also found that almost half (43%) of workers feel their workplace doesn't celebrate - or even communicate - breakdowns throughout the business, and over a third (39%) of workers reported poor dynamics in their team.

Managing director of Lane4 Adrian Moorhouse, said: "Ineffective communication between employees and management has serious consequences on both morale and performance.

"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."

Moorhouse added: "This will ultimately help to drive employee engagement, which we know has a direct impact on business results."

The online survey of 1,500 UK workers was conducted by OnePoll in July 2012.
