Employees disconnected at work due to corporate jargon

Published by Employer News February 7, 2024

New research by BRITA VIVREAU reveals that corporate jargon is limiting employers’ and employees’ ability to be authentic, leaving workers feeling disconnected and less likely to start conversations at work.

  • A quarter (25%) of office workers said corporate jargon makes them feel disconnected from their colleagues
  • Almost a third (31%) said it makes them feel less confident speaking to senior colleagues
  • More than half (53%) are more likely to use corporate jargon when they’re in the office


Eloise Leeson-Smith, leading Linguist & Language Expert, explains:

“Corporate jargon is all too common in the workplace but can be exclusionary and leave employees feeling left out – creating barriers between them and their colleagues. This will often result in ineffective communication in the workplace, which can be incredibly costly for employers.

“In fact, a recent report from Axios HQ estimated it can cost over £11,000 per employee in lost productivity. So, with communication between colleagues now taking up 72% of the work week, it’s no surprise that employees and executives cite that lack of effective collaboration and communication as the main cause of workplace failures and frustrations."
