ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a research which investigated the willingness of managers across Great Britain to communicate with subordinates, using an online questionnaire. The research has found that managers were not as engaged in their role or with their organisation. A consequence of the poor level of engagement among managers was that only 52 per cent saw communicating with their team as a key part of their job; that figure rose to 80 per cent among those who were excited about their organisation's plans.
