IDEA EXTRACTED FROM:
Breadcrumbed At Work
Breadcrumbing is a corporate practice in which the employee is provided the bare minimum or less than optimal information, feedback, rewards by the manager, keeping it a one-way communication.
The employee feels dejected, unvalued and confused. He has to work harder due to the opacity and limited set of information. He is kept in the dark as crucial information is not shared with him easily. There is no encouragement or listening to new ideas.
