LinkedIn labeled its news item, “Do we have a failure to communicate?” The article expanded on details shared in a Bloomberg article that found “after so many fits and starts, employees are losing faith that their managers can get this right.” What employees believe managers can’t get right is the return-to-the-workplace agenda that has created headaches for all involved. Employees are feeling uneasy with all the changed dates. Fully three-quarters of executives believe they are being “fully transparent” about their remote working policies but less than half of employees agree, according to one survey. In this episode, Neville and Shel take a look at the story from the communicator’s perspective.
We also have a brief update on the Hermès NFT kerfuffle we reported in episode #222.
The next monthly, long-form episode of FIR will drop on Monday, February 14, 2022.
We are hosting a Communicators Zoom Chat each Thursday at 1 p.m. ET. For credentials needed to participate, contact Shel or Neville directly or request the credentials in our Facebook group or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
