Survey: Most Employees Expect Failure

Advertisement

Feb. 12, 2007 -- A vast majority of employees expect major workplace projects to fail, according to a recent online survey by Vital Smarts, a corporate training firm based in Provo, Utah.

As many as 82 percent of respondents said they believed large workplace initiatives were likely to fail, while 78 percent said they were personally working on what they consider a "doomed" project, the survey found.

Nearly all the employees surveyed said they're aware early on when a project is going badly, but are unable to approach key decision makers about problems.

Vital Smarts, the developer of Crucial Conversations, a program designed to help improve co-worker relations, ranked No. 491 on the 2006 Inc. 500 list of the nation's fastest-growing private companies.
