New York/London: In a recent survey of 68 senior human resources professionals in the hotel, restaurant, gaming and travel industries, AETHOS Consulting Group’s Andrew Hazelton and Thomas Mielke discovered good news as well as concerning trends that HR and senior leadership should address when tackling goals in 2016. The root of the issue: poor support in one HR duty can launch a negative domino effect impacting overall strategy.
“We reached out to leaders from around the globe and asked them candid questions about the degree of alignment between performance expectations and the resources allocated to their human resources department,” explains Mielke, AETHOS Managing Director based in London. The anecdotal responses share several surprising insights:
However, Andrew Hazelton, AETHOS Managing Director based in Philadelphia explains that, “While this seems to be good news to validate the importance of HR in the corporate setting, the actual degree to which HR is supported proves otherwise. A startling 67% of the respondents agree that HR constantly fights internal battles for the necessary resources to achieve its goals.”
“Our findings suggest that while HR is supported in areas such as peer support, flexibility and deadlines, HR is not nearly as well resourced by staffing or budgets,” adds Mielke. The daily reality of HR starts off well-aligned to corporate mandates, according to the AETHOS Report. “Building a talent pipeline, engagement and culture are of prime importance,” continues Hazelton. “Unfortunately it’s at this stage where derailment seems to occur, because handing issues regarding corporate relations takes precedence over training, development and performance feedback responsibilities,” says Mielke.
