TRIBE TRIVIA: Communications from direct manager vs. corporate

Question: Do employees have any preference in who communicates what?

Answer: In Tribe’s national research with employees of large companies, we found marked differences in the topics employees prefer to hear from their direct managers rather than corporate. For human resources and information like quarterly earnings, company news and press releases, they prefer communications from their direct managers. But when it comes to values and vision, or any major changes in the company, they want to hear straight from the top.
