BBG Watch Commentary

VOA Learning EnglishVoice of America (VOA) employees have told BBG Watch of continuing management shortcomings within the organization, which they blame mostly on VOA’s top leadership refusing to address serious employee morale issues.

Many top VOA executives have shown to be terrible managers. Examples of poor management can be found throughout the organization.

BBG Watch has learned of both longstanding and new problems affecting employee morale in the VOA English Learning unit. They are to be discussed Tuesday during an afternoon meeting between VOA’s senior leaders and the staff of VOA Learning English, journalists told BBG Watch. They expressed concern about long delays in addressing these issues and fear that VOA’s senior management will take no effective measures to resolve them.
