Employee Outlook




“With employee perceptions of the job market improving organisations need to be proactive about their retention strategies if they want to prevent their best talent from jumping ship. This means ensuring your performance management processes are clear and consistent and used to align employees to the vision of the organisation."  

VP of Marketing and Business Development at Halogen Software

The latest report shows a marked increase in negative perceptions of senior managers, with overall trust and confidence in senior managers hitting a two-year low. Trust and confidence levels are particularly low in the public sector and have potentially been influenced by the current unrest and strike action going on in the public sector.
