HR Acuity just released the results of our Seventh Annual Employee Relations Benchmark Study and this year’s results are a must-read. Every year we collect data around critical employee relations issues including workplace harassment and discrimination, effective ER models, investigative trends and more. As the annual data builds, we see ER establishing norms including organizational structures, the scope of the function and critical metrics for analysis. Every year we see ER benchmarking best practices and strengthening the case for dedicated budget, specialized technology and powerful analytics on par with traditional HR categories.
After reflecting on this year’s results, it’s clear that Employee Relations has arrived as a full fledged-function. It’s also clear that our time to lead is right now.
