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.

  • How Do Safety Programs Save Businesses Money?

    A while back, we published a blog post citing data suggesting that investing in a workplace safety program can actually save businesses significant money (not to mention stress!) In fact, the survey, which was conducted by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), found that for every one dollar investment in such a program, companies can expect to see a return of up to six dollars, which feels particularly relevant when OSHA notes that most occupational injuries are paid for directly out of company profits.  Read on below to learn how exactly such programs contribute to cost savings and how they
