We've now released four insightful research papers. Using robust survey techniques, they show that only 19% of employees think there is a high level of wellbeing in their workplace.
In contrast, 61% of employers believe this to be the case. This suggests that employers do not have an accurate understanding of the needs of their employees.
This gap is not restricted to wellbeing. A lack of open, honest communication and engagement between employers and employees is creating a sense of “them and us” rather than “we.” Only 15% of employees believe the success generated by the organisation is shared fairly, compared to 70% of employers.
When looking specifically at how remuneration is communicated, the gap is almost just as wide. Only 32% of employees feel that there is genuine openness and transparency about remuneration, compared to 68% for employers – a gap of 36%.
The lack of trust within organisations should be of real concern for employers.
