US employees frustrated by best practices


According to a recent survey conducted by communication training and leadership development company Fierce, 44 percent of U.S. employees believe the best practices set forth by a business actually hinder employee productivity and morale, while 47 percent said they get in the way of desired results.

With best practices failing to achieve what they are created for, businesses are seeing more frustrated workers. Other frustrations come from a lack of transparency in the workplace, which nearly half of respondents singled out.

"This survey should encourage managers to question the practices in place, and actively engage their staff in creating new policies that are geared more toward transparency and employee empowerment," said Halley Bock, CEO of Fierce.

Employees that don't feel appreciated by the workplace could turn on their employer and file a lawsuit against them in the event of a dispute or termination. Because of the unpredictability of employees, businesses should look to invest in a type of business insurance that would provide protection from suits of this nature.

To improve morale in the workplace, Business 2 Community outlined some practices to improve the employee experience. These methods include removing barriers to access, creating a supportive culture and allowing for trial and error.
