The CIPD and Halogen Software Employee Outlook survey reveals that as well as feeling performance management systems are unfair, almost a third of employees also feel progression within their organisation is unachievable, with one in five stating that their managers do not effectively communicate objectives and expectations.

Trust and confidence in senior leaders has fallen to a two year low, with almost one third of employees believing that performance management systems are unfair. That’s according to a survey of over 2,500 employees published today by the CIPD, the professional body for HR and people development, in partnership with Halogen Software.

The survey is now produced twice a year. This will allow more time for trends to develop between surveys and CIPD will also be running more topical reports in between.

b2b partnerships helped form this partnership to enable Halogen raise their profile in the UK.

Halogen Software offers an organically built cloud-based talent management suite that reinforces and drives higher employee performance across all talent programmes. With over 1,750 customers worldwide, Halogen have been recognised as a market leader by major business analysts and has garnered the highest customer satisfaction ratings in the industry.
