What do managers think about their company’s talent management processes, tactics, and initiatives? “Needs improvement” is the verdict for many, according to a Josh Bersin/Betterworks survey of more than 1,000 people managers.

It starts with a lack of a clearly communicated corporate purpose, the respondents said. Just 41 percent reported that everyone at their company understands the company’s mission and vision. Slightly fewer (40 percent) said that “corporate, departmental, and team goals are transparent and shared openly at all levels of the organization.” As for the managers themselves, 62 percent do not “have a clear understanding of the top company priorities” over the next 12 months.

“It is not enough to simply communicate the top company goals; employees need to see how their own work goals connect with them and how what they do interconnects with what others are working on across the business,” the authors write. “In addition to transparent alignment, companies must also frequently and openly communicate the cross-functional progress towards these top company goals. This transparency increases accountability and facilitates necessary collaboration.”
