Engagement at senior level
A deep lack of engagement between senior managers and the rest of the workforce is growing. Organisations are ignoring their employees and stakeholders, putting the mechanics of strategy delivery ahead of any value that strategy will deliver to the business.
Research carried out in over 18,000 organisations in more than 30 countries shows that tension and division at senior level is rife. More than a third of the world’s managers responsible for devising their organisational strategy are caught in continuous, damaging infighting. As more than two-thirds find it difficult to raise the issue, it remains unaddressed, leading to further problems for organisations.
