Just In! Staff level employees feel more out of the loop than ever!

January 4th, 2018

What’s hot?

Addison Group recently released the results of its fourth annual Workplace Survey. This year’s survey focused on the lack of alignment between leadership and staff level employees.  One of the most distressing findings related to aspiring leaders:

Staff level employees are 36 percent less confident than senior leaders that they are adequately trained for the future.






So what?

The findings suggest a variance in how employees at different levels perceive their own influence within a company.  It was reported that only 6% percent of staff level employees perceive that speaking up will make a difference.

What to do?
