Research shows leadership need to demonstrate responsiveness.
Research by Brunswick found a gap between how leaders view issues of workplace conduct and how non-leadership employees see them. In short, leaders are optimistic – and out of touch. The data, collected from a nationally representative sample of 1,000 US adults in August 2018, also found that workplace conduct issues remain prevalent across industries, and that employee trust is in short supply. Almost one in two workers believed HR would prioritize the company over employees.
