Clear communication:

Still a problem at work

In a recent survey, 1400 chief financial officers were asked:

What one mistake do companies make most in managing their employees?

The top three answers:

  1. Lack of communication between management and employees- 61%
  2. Lack of employee recognition and praise- 19%
  3. Lack of flexibility in scheduling work hours – 7%

Nothing is quite so annoying as to have someone go right on talking when you’re interrupting.

Ideas and Insights

“When I ask people in the workforce what they want most, they say two things: “We want honesty”, and second, “We want to learn new skills so we can continually improve ourselves. Then, if we apply for a job within the company or externally, we’re going to be better than when we started this job.”

“As a result, organizations today have got to become ongoing educational institutions. This kind of thinking alone will go a long way to helping both managers and employees polish their skills and loyalties.”

“Profit is the applause you get for taking care of your customers and providing a motivating environment for your people.”
