More than one in five people in the UK work in a job that involves human resources, according to a survey of the country’s workforce.
This means that over 70% of all workers are at least partially reliant on human resources.
The figures, compiled by employment charity, The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (TIPD), suggest the UK is one of the countries with the most people reliant on HR support.
More than one-third of respondents in the survey said they relied on HR services, and nearly three-quarters of respondents said they were looking for a job in HR.
The study, which asked more than 2,000 UK adults about their job-related decisions, also found that more than one third of workers said they felt stressed about the lack of HR support they were getting.TIPDC chief executive David Williams said: “This research shows that HR is vital for many organisations.
HR professionals need to be prepared to spend significant time communicating and working with the wider HR team to make sure that their staff feel supported and engaged.”
