Interesting insights from our research partner Ipsos MORI
As we climb out of one of recession, our friends at Ipsos MORI have been looking at how the recession has changed the workplace. Are organisations bouncing back to where they were before, or have they somehow changed? Ipsos MORI’s first analysis looks at how the recession has affected the way corporate Britain manages its people.
The analysis identifies some important challenges for leaders, people managers and HR. Compared with pre-recession times, the emphasis has shifted more towards getting the job done, and less on investing in our people.
Have a look at the blog on the Ipsos MORI site to read more about:
- How much employees feel invested in and developed
- How well organisations motivate employees
- Employee perceptions of line managers
Ipsos MORI analysis suggests appear to have shifted their focus somewhat towards managing people as resources, and away from managing them as people. What are the implications for this? The next wave of benchmark data – due imminently – will provide insights into how well organisations are rising to the challenge.

Ipsos MORI is currently conducting joint research with Cirrus looking at how leaders can connect with their organisations to address some of these issues. The comprehensive report, ‘Leadership Connections: How HR deals with C-Suite Leadership’, will be published early next year. To find out more, please click here.
