What's on Manager's minds?

The CIPD recently published this article relating to a report from Roffey Park regarding the pressing issues on business managers minds.

"The economic climate is still the number one challenge for business, says this new research report from Roffey Park, with most organisations preoccupied with efficiency and cost savings.

  • The prolonged economic crisis is having a negative impact on managers who are feeling more insecure and under pressure, with public sector managers most affected. Those at the top of organisations generally feel more secure and optimistic about the future.

  • Larger organisations are finding the economic climate more difficult. They are under greater pressure from reduced revenue and difficult employee relations but are also finding it hard to adapt to changes in the macro-economic, political and regulatory environment.

  • Redundancies are still only being handled adequately. Well-managed redundancies align staff reductions to future business needs, carry out an open and transparent process with real consultation at all levels and provide good support for the people leaving.

  • International organisations are finding bureaucracy, political and legal systems and IT a challenge in managing international teams effectively. They also found it difficult to manage performance when cultural issues were problematic."
