HR lacks credibility with managers

Less than a third (30%) of managers think HR adds value to their organisation. Research unveiled today by Roffey Park reveals HR must respond better to the needs of the business, as well as improve its customer focus and credibility.
The survey, which was completed by nearly 800 managers last autumn, found more than half (59%) of managers are feeling the pressure due to the economic downturn. Stress, it found, has increased dramatically from 67% in 2008 to 83% in 2009.
One of the few areas of positive news was on leadership and the economic crisis: 62% of managers feel leadership in their organisation is good with 6% believing it to be excellent. Only 4% view leadership as very poor. When managers were surveyed in November/December2008, almost 80% thought leadership in their organisation was good or very good, compared with less than 70% earlier in the year. read full article
