The latest Employee Outlook 2015 survey, published by the CIPD, the professional body for HR and people development, in partnership with Halogen, reveals some interesting findings about employees’ perceptions of work and the workplace.

One of the most insightful of these is that regardless of organisation size, the vast majority of employees want to work for a firm that has a ‘family feel’ and is ‘held together by loyalty and tradition’. Join us for this complimentary webinar in which we’ll delve deeper into this finding – and reveal other insights from the report, including:

  • Employee attitudes to senior leaders and line managers
  • Trends in job satisfaction and employee engagement
  • Feelings about work-life balance and pressure at work
  • Employee perspectives on performance management
