Employee Outlook




“Investing in career development is just good business sense. We see first hand how it helps organisations retain key employees and provide a pipeline of great talent for corporate growth."

Donna Ronayne, VP of Marketing and Business Development at Halogen Software,


Employee Outlook,
produced in partnership with Halogen, is now produced twice a year: spring and autumn.

The latest report found that one in three employees report that their career progression to date has failed to meet their expectations and more than a quarter are either dissatisfied or very dissatisfied with the level of career training and development offered by their current employer.
