In most workplaces, the only messages that go out, loud and clear, are “all that matters is your work…you’re as good as your last job” Nothing else matter, not you or issues, problems, joys, sorrows, friends or family. Seems a hard thing to digest?
Recent surveys have shown that over 30 % of employees in both manufacturing and service sectors experience the lack of opportunities to utilise their skills. And they have been trying their damndest to get themselves heard. Nothing can erode a sense of empowerment more than your opinions being ignored.
