Survey Reveals Employees Unsure of HR’s Role

There is a pretty big divide when it comes to what employees think their human resources department is responsible for and what the department actually does, according to new survey.

While employees understand some core HR functions such as handling employee disputes and managing benefits and payroll, the survey points out a disconnect with other responsibilities.

  • Training employees (29% of employees said it was the role of HR; 61% of HR professionals actually do)
  • Recruiting new employee talent (54% of employees; 67% HR professionals actually do)
  • Tracking sick days/personal days (45% of employees; 58% HR professionals actually do)
  • Approving vacation time (33% of employees; 44% HR professionals actually do)

The study also helped to identify a number of areas where employees felt that HR could be more proactive or otherwise improve their performance, including:

The majority of employees ranked their HR department’s overall performance as average. Few employees ranked their HR below average, and employees of large companies were most likely to rank HR’s performance as above average.

  • What is the Fourth Industrial Revolution to HR?

    Before we dive in to how the fourth industrial revolution is going to change the face of HR, let us first discuss what an industrial revolution represents, and how we are already up to the fourth iteration! Now, in general, a technological revolution refers to any significant change in “the material conditions of human existence can reshape culture.” In general, it is associated with a series of changes—either material or ideological—after the introduction of a new device or system. To date, Western culture recognizes several major revolutions, including the financial-agricultural revolution, the industrial revolution, the second industrial revolution (a.k.a.

  • Is the Annual Review Going the Way of the Dodo?

    In the last year, buzz has emerged suggesting that there is no place in business for the performance review. We’ve read the articles, we’ve reviewed the data, we’ve even chatted about it internally, and we’re on the fence, so we figured we’d present the facts and let you decide whether you can drop them from your corporate to-do list.
