Job dissatisfaction rockets due to bad management

One-third of UK employees are looking for new roles because they are unhappy at work and almost nine in 10 do not feel they receive the training they need to do their jobs, according to research released today.

The findings from business consultants Lane4 also revealed that 86% of workers said they do not get the training and guidance required for their job, 57% do not believe they are being communicated to clearly about their own career progression at work and almost half (43%) feel their current workplace does not celebrate success.

Furthermore, it could be inter-office relations that lead to communication breakdowns throughout the business, as more than one-third (39%) of workers reported poor dynamics in their team.

Lane4 managing director and Olympic gold medallist Adrian Moorhouse said: “Ineffective communication between employees and management has serious consequences on both morale and performance. With more than 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.”
