Survey: Two-Thirds of Employees Struggling with Uncertainty

Woodcliff Lake, N.J. — March 29

Only one-third of employees regularly receive the information and resources needed to perform their jobs well, according to a new survey by career transition and talent development consulting firm Lee Hecht Harrison. Additionally, 58 percent reported only sometimes or rarely receiving information and resources necessary to do their jobs, while one in ten said never.

Lee Hecht Harrison surveyed more than 350 individuals throughout the U.S. via an online poll that was conducted in March. They asked: “Does your boss provide you with the information and resources needed to perform your job well?”

According to Lee Hecht Harrison President Peter Alcide, “Ambiguity and uncertainty in the workplace will play havoc with the ability to achieve business objectives. Employees must have clarity around the mission and goals of the organization; their role in achieving these goals; how their performance is measured; and guidance on how to prioritize competing demands.”
