New Study! People Leaders and the Gap in Managing Employee Issues

Get a fresh perspective on an age-problem.

People leaders find it challenging to have difficult conversations and manage day-to-day employee issues. So where do they turn for help? To employee relations. And while ER professionals are eager to see people leaders successfully manage these issues, it’s inefficient and unscalable for ER professionals to continually provide the support that people leaders need. To learn more about the underlying causes and effects of the challenges people leaders face in managing employee issues, we surveyed 700 people leaders from a wide range of companies, industries and management levels, along with 126 employee relations leaders (as part of the HR Acuity Fifth Annual Employee Relations Benchmark Study).

Review the findings to learn:

  • How people leaders manage employee issues and their confidence in their abilities
  • How employee relations professionals view people leaders’ abilities to employee issues; and
  • The effect of this process on employee relations, employee experience, hybrid work and the overall organization.
