CIPD Employee Outlook Survey: How Do Your Employees Feel?

The CIPD Employee Outlook survey gauges employee views on working life.

This Autumn, the survey revealed employees are most productive when they’re doing work they find interesting, they're able to use their initiative or when they are given a task which complements their skills.

Further to this, the study showed nearly a third or employees feel overqualified for their current role and feel it’s unlikely they will fulfil their career aspirations in their current organisation.

And with attitudes towards management worsening, it’s clear HR must take a lead to improve the outlook of employees in 2016.

But, how can they tackle these areas most effectively?

Join us for this People Management webinar, brought to you in association with Halogen Software and CIPD, to learn more.

This webinar will cover:

  • What are the enablers and blockers of employee productivity?
  • Best practice for improving role and skill alignment
  • How to create opportunities for career growth
  • Ways to boost job satisfaction, attitudes to senior leaders and job seeking intentions
