Who's doing the talking?

bullhorn2I know most of us aren’t privileged enough to work for organizations that have their own Communications or PR departments. Sometimes Investor Relations takes over on this front for those of us with public companies. But more often than not, the responsibility (implicitly) falls on HR. In a recent Deloitte survey conducted as part of their “Managing Talent in a Turbulent Economy” series, 62% of employees who indicated they intended to leave their current job faulted lack of communication from executives during the recession.  Isn’t this to a large extent our (HR Department’s) fault?  I bet a bunch of those employees would say exactly that.
