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.

  • Should you opt for a PEO or a payroll company?

    Joe Frazier versus Muhammad Ali, Boston Red Sox versus New York Yankees. Green Bay Packers versus Chicago Bears. PEO versus payroll companies. Well, turns out one of these things are not like the other and not just because they don’t involve sports teams and packed stadiums, but rather because there really isn’t any rivalry, per se, between a PEO company and a payroll company. You see, while they both help you offload some of your HR responsibilities, they function in entirely different ways. A payroll company really dials in and takes over just one facet of the human resources world.

  • HR how-to: Do you have a gift giving policy?

    While you’re still nursing your turkey hangover, we’ve been busy thinking about the holiday season ahead and while it’s sure to be full of festive cheer, it’s also a season ripe for some rather large HR pitfalls. Take the good ol’ holiday gift. Whether it’s a secret Santa, a white elephant, a Yankee Swap, or any other name for a holiday exchange, it is one holiday tradition that definitely could be helped by the addition of a gift-giving policy. What are the rules? (of the gift giving, not the game, obviously!) Make it voluntary: The holiday period can be tough
