Better management communication 'can improve staff engagement'
Interim management staff could make a positive impact on the productivity of a company's workforce by improving internal communication standards.
People development company European Leaders has published a new business survey finding that two-thirds of employees admit to failing to understand their company's overall vision, which causes them to become less motivated.
A similar proportion of respondents stated that they feel their productivity would increase if they were managed more effectively.
Ashley Ward, director of European Leaders, said a unifying trait among the UK's top-performing organisations is a focus on communicating company values and driving employee engagement.
He added: "A seemingly negligible investment can get teams much closer to their full potential performance, resulting in a happier workforce and significant financial benefits."
Last month, Chartered Management Institute chief executive Ruth Spellman stated that many UK workers have been left demoralised by the state of the economy, providing management staff with ample opportunity to demonstrate their motivational skills.
