|Gosh, I've really been slacking on the ole blog.
Ever have communication issues with your boss/supervisor?
Well, we did an employee satisfaction survey back around Thanksgiving and the results finally are in.
It seems that a lot of people are complaining (or just stating) that there is a lack of communication with the supervisors/managers/leaders.
The CEO's solution?
Have a company wide series of meetings (the same 1 hr meeting all day so everyone has a chance to attend) to discuss the company's goals and strategies for 2010. This way no one can say that they aren't communicating their goals and objectives.
Never mind that that isn't what most people were talking about. Personally, I don't care what they're planning for the 3rd quarter. Me? I want to know what my goals for today are going to be!
Now for the kicker. This meeting was on Tuesday. I found out the meeting was on Tuesday... Tuesday when I walked through the door. Talked to several coworkers.
No one told anyone in our department that we were having a meeting.
Yeah. That's right. We had a meeting about communication due to lack of communication and no one communicated that we were having a meeting.
Is that classic or what?
