    When it comes to change in the workplace, employees aren’t as worried about workload as one might think, according to a new Tell It NowSM survey from ComPsych Corporation. Thirty-one percent of employees are most troubled by unclear expectations from supervisors, while 20 percent are most worried about people issues around change.

    ComPsych Corporation is the world’s largest provider of employee assistance programs and is the pioneer and worldwide leader of fully integrated EAP, behavioral health, wellness, work-life, HR, FMLA and absence management services under its GuidanceResources brand. “Change has become a constant for many workplaces, whether in the U.S. or globally,” said Dr. Richard A. Chaifetz, Founder, Chairman and CEO of ComPsych. ”Employees are noting that much of the disequilibrium around change is coming from managers. These challenges have resulted in the training topics of ‘resiliency’ and ‘coping with change’ being by far the most popular,” he added.

    The employee survey asked participants what was most stressful when there were changes at work.

    31 percent said “unclear expectations from supervisors”
