The human resources profession is a key component of the economy, yet for most companies, there’s a lack of leadership in human resources.
A survey conducted by HR expert Marc Cressey and HR expert and author, Dr. Dan O’Neill found that the overwhelming majority of employers were either unprepared for the rise in HR workloads or were unable to adapt.
And this lack of knowledge in HR has resulted in a growing divide between the employees and the HR professionals.
Dr. Cresse and Dr. O’Neil found that while 70% of the respondents said they would not hire a manager or HR professional if they knew what they were talking about, just 15% said they’d hire a HR professional.
And the percentage of managers that said they were not familiar with HR was even lower.
While the survey found that employees were more comfortable with their HR roles, it also found that HR professionals were far less likely to know how to effectively engage in their own HR role.
