It’s easy to get sucked into the latest stats and facts on human resources and start to make sweeping generalisations about your workforce. And while no one can deny that high churn rates and low engagement levels are costing UK organisations dearly, there are conceptions around employee retention, surveying, and behaviours that require closer inspection.
In this free People Management expert report, our Director of People Science, Ryan Tahmassebi, explores the broader truth surrounding three modern-day human resources myths.
Do millennials expect a completely different work experience to previous generations, or are they just more vocal about their everyday needs and long-term ambitions?
Is “survey fatigue” a real thing, or is the lack of feedback actioning by employers causing employee apathy?
Is ‘retention’ a problem for the UK because employees are flighty, or is employee experience the core factor in retaining good people?
Business psychologist Ryan underpins his views with Hive customer insights, which are strengthened by the voices of like-minded business leaders – who also offer advice on creating an organisational culture that meets the needs of a modern workforce.
