According to recent research by YouGov, many employees thrive on office gossip rather than information from the boss in finding out what is happening in the business.
According to the research, 56% of employees became aware of changes via rumour and 68% said they wanted to hear about changes directly from their manager.
With the current economic problems likely to persist for some time, and with many firms likely to have to make organisational changes at work, it is more important than ever to keep workers fully informed. Our advice – talk to staff and keep them up to date on changes through team briefings and one to one meetings. Our own experience shows this makes a big different to staff morale.
