To combat the ill feeling, the GABMC is arguing that how managers communicate, consult, coach and develop staff is critical for morale and that organizations need to deliver consistently high quality leadership for their own sustainability.
GABMC further said:" If organizations don't invest in developing high performing managers, they may find better managed competitors racing past on the road to recovery. Employers need to find cost effective ways of equipping their line managers with the people management skills to support employee engagement and well being.
"They also need to consult and involve staff where major reorganizations or changes in terms and conditions are looming if they are to keep people on side and pulling together to deliver future success."
After tracking the progress of twenty top organizations undertaking change programmes,it has revealed eight areas which businesses should concentrate on including capability building, collaborative leadership and organizational agility. These areas came as the GABMC published the findings from one year research program.
The findings also supported the need for best practice management and communications approaches to ensure fully engaged employees.
