HR’s strategic input remains poorly acknowledged

By Becky Frith for HR Magazine

More than three-quarters (76%) of HR professionals believe HR’s strategic input is poorly acknowledged, according to research from software provider Cascade HR.

The Cascade Client Survey 2015 found that 39% of HR professionals do not need to report an overview of their department, 42% are not expected to report on workforce diversity, and 48% are not required to report on salary information.

"HR needs to look at itself quite critically to examine why that contribution is not recognised when many of the central issues facing boards fall firmly within the HR areas of expertise and specialism; namely succession and development, culture and tone, remuneration and strategy, not to mention resourcing of key positions.
