Why do we need to bridge the gap of communication in the workplace?
What does research tell us about communication in the workplace?
Several Studies have revealed that 80% of employees feel their is miscommunication in their workplace; accountability is often overlooked. Also, more than half of employees do not feel they can speak their mind freely at work.
Technology is also a source for miscommunication in the workplace because email, texting and phone usage are more susceptible to misinterpretation.
32.5% of respondents thought supervisors were most responsible for communicating most clearly.
Interestingly, group conversations are the most likely to result in miscommunication due to individual perceptions interpreting messages differently. 46% of employees rarely leave a meeting knowing what they are supposed to do or having the ability to summarize the main points of the meetings.
Developing trust in the work environment is so important. Communication is at the core and studies show organizations need to strengthen their muscles around clear conversations and transparent messaging.
