The two groups’ opinions on operational efficiency don’t exactly align
Managers tend to view their organization’s ability to plan and complete projects more favorably than the workers they oversee, according to a new report involving data from companies with more than 100 employees.
Managers and employees perceive a number of operational aspects differently, including their team’s ability to take on a bigger workload.
More than half (55 percent) of managers feel confident their teams can handle a 20 percent increase in their workload. Only 43 percent of non-managers agree.
Thirty-two percent of managers consider their team to be a well-oiled machine. Even fewer non-managers — just 21 percent — feel the same way.
The report suggests some age groups are particularly dissatisfied with their employer’s level of operational efficiency. More than 80 percent of millennials and 75 percent of Gen X employees say they’ve become disengaged or are looking for a new job as a result.
