The Jackson Organization, a group of independent market researchers (which has since been purchased) conducted a 221,061 person study crossing industries, job types, and backgrounds.
At the end of the survey participants were asked:
"Other than salaries, staffing, or benefits, if you were your company president, what two things would you do to make your workplace better for your employees?"
1.) Better teamwork and more communication
2.) More recognition and appreciation
3.) Improve the workplace/facility
4.) Better, more visible management
Communication keeps topping the charts as something to focus on......... Does your company prioritize this?
