The Employee Outlook survey, produced in partnership with Halogen Software is now produced twice a year. This will allow more time for trends to develop between surveys and we will also be running more topical focus outlook reports in between.

Questions on organisation culture were included for the first time and revealed a mismatch between how employees currently see the culture of their organisation and the type of culture that they would prefer to work within. Variations between men and women and age groups have significant implications for talent management and overall business success.

"Those aged 18–24 would least like to work in ‘a formalised and structured place to work, where procedures govern what people do and hold people together’"
