I am a middle manager in department of about 150 IT employees. The perception is that internal communication is dismal - top managers don't talk to each other, there is no interaction between sections on common problems, and a definite lack of top down communication. The effect of this lack of communication is telling - super low morale, departures, etc.
My role in the department is administrative (I count beans and process papers) so I'm perceived as an outsider to the IT department. Everyone seems to be content with the current environment or is waiting for someone else to provide a miracle cure to our communications problems.
Does anyone have any ideas as to how to jumpstart/revive internal communications to at least the cordial stage.
Thanx in advance
