Advanced Personnel Management Systems can help mitigate high staff turnover
Personnel Management Systems that provide managers with a broad perspective on their employees skills and expectations will help mitigate to some extent the high levels of staff turnover that is currently affecting the UK economy, a survey by the CIPD has suggested.
The number of employees who are looking for a new job has reached a two-and-a-half year high, while job satisfaction is also at its lowest level in two years, the CIPD/Halogen Employee Outlook, which surveyed more than 2,000 people, has been able to find.
The survey also revealed that almost a quarter of employees are currently looking for a new job, up from 20 per cent in autumn 2015. This level is the highest since autumn 2013, when 24 per cent of respondents said they were job-seeking.
Net job satisfaction has also decreased substantially since last autumn, from a net score of +48 to +40. Although job satisfaction was found to have dropped across all areas of the economy, the private sector fared worst, declining from +50 to +41.
While 33 per cent said their organisation can fulfil their career aspirations, 36 per cent said this is ‘unlikely’ or ‘very unlikely’. And while 44 per cent believe their organisation provides opportunities to learn and grow, 30 per cent disagree.
Another area of dissatisfaction for some is around performance management systems. While more than two-fifths of employees believe their organisation’s approach to performance management is fair, almost a fifth said it is ‘somewhat unfair’ or ‘very unfair’.
Claire McCartney, research adviser for resourcing and talent planning at the CIPD, said: “There has been a big decrease in job satisfaction: it has been two-and-a-half years since it was last at this level. The wider global economic uncertainty will have had an impact, but some of the themes we are seeing coming though, such as a lack of career progression opportunities and development opportunities on the job, also affect job satisfaction.”
Tensor Time and Attendance Systems enable enhanced skills management and performance monitoring
Beside checking attendance and worked times, the Tensor WinTA Time and Attendance suite also includes a dedicated HR module. Tensor Personnel allows you to record a vast amount of personal information about your company staff, including here basic details, course attendance, educational history, language skills, professional institute memberships, skills, etc.
Moreover, WinTA.NET supplies the relevant managers with information on employee’s absences through warning email notifications or via hardcopy reports. After that, the intelligent employee management system would rapidly identify missing employees that are expected to be at work and then informs you via automatic email reporting reports distributed by email.
