– Finds Workplace Investigation Increases “Almost Across the Board”

Employee Relations technology provider HR Acuity recently released the findings of its inaugural 2016 Benchmark Study. Profiling 74 companies representing over 870,000 employees, the 56 page 2016 HR Acuity Employee Relations Benchmark Study analyzed employee relations practices related to organizational models, case management processes, metrics and issue types, volumes and trends. The goal of the Benchmark Study was to establish a foundation for the development of a unique set of best practice employee relations benchmarks.

Frequency and complexity of incidents are growing as organizations continue to adapt to a changing workforce. The HR Acuity Benchmark Study reports that over fifty percent of HR or Employee Relations professionals manage 11 to 25 issues at any time–with some caseloads greater than 35.

Deborah J. Muller, founder of HR Acuity, says “For too long, data like this has been simply unavailable. We’re thrilled to share our findings in order to help those in HR make better strategic decisions around models and resource allocation. Further, it’s clear that organizations are adopting technology at a rapid rate to assist with both employee relations management as well as analytics.”

The report shares a wealth of often-requested information including:

  • Pros and cons around Centralized and Decentralized models;
  • Frequency of different employee relations issues; and
  • Staffing levels based on size and industry.
