Axios HQ Unveils Survey on Workplace Communications
Survey finds disconnection between communicators, their employees
1 big thing: Axios HQ today released a survey on workplace communications, titled “The communications crisis: A dive into why workplace communications aren’t working.”
- Axios HQ surveyed more than 400 employees, communications professionals and executives from a full range of industries, and of all sizes, to understand how leaders communicate at work and how to be better communicators at work.
- Industries surveyed include healthcare, banking and finance, education, government and public administration.
Why it matters: Axios HQ is dedicated to helping organizations communicate more effectively.
- “Since launching Axios HQ, we’ve heard from communicators about their struggles to keep employees engaged,” said Axios co-founder and President Roy Schwartz. “This survey highlights the challenges faced by all communicators and shares what they can do to better engage with their teams.”
By the numbers:
- 66% of communicators think they know what to say to their employees, but only 31% of employees agree.
- 74% of communicators think they write concise and effective communications, while 60% of employees say they don't.
- 45% of communicators say they don’t receive enough feedback on their communications, but 31% of employees say they don’t have a good place to share feedback.
- More than half (59%) of communicators say that getting their employees to read their communications is the most challenging part about sending them out.
