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

Published:

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.
