Lunch yesterday with Australian HR exec and writer Andrew O'Keeffe, author of The Boss, a novel I'll be reviewing here soon enough.
But I couldn't embargo this true anecdote that O'Keeffe shared about employee communication.
A CEO was told that an engagement survey had found that employees think company communication leaves a lot to be desired.
"If people think communication around here is poor," he bellowed, "they are seriously misinformed!"
Well, if you needed something to concisely demonstrate why the employee communication profession exists, that pretty much sums it up.
