Are HR Directors around the UK currently balanced precariously on a talent tightrope? The Curve Group’s recent survey of leading UK HR Directors from across seven different industry sectors would suggest so. The survey of a cross section of HR Directors identified what companies are doing now to get ahead of their competitors and their plans for 2017. Some of the statistics we have found are extremely concerning as it confirms many are finding it difficult to focus on their primary objectives as an HR Director. This is leading to many HR Directors and HR divisions being consumed by the day-to-day needs of the business rather than delivering the long term value that HR should be providing to an organisation. If any of the above sounds similar to what you are currently experiencing within your business then read on to find out how you can defy these trends.
