Changing Expectations & Perceptions

May 25, 2021 12:00 pm1:00 PM EST


87% of c-suite leaders believe the pandemic has accelerated changes in HR, and over a third of employees believe HR has adapted to become more responsive.

These were just some of the findings in Sage People’s first research report in our ‘HR in the moment’ series, looking at changing expectations and perceptions of HR today from over 1,500 HR leaders, c-suite executives, and employees.

From increased workloads to an accelerated digital transformation, join Sage People to discuss the impact of the pandemic on expectations and perceptions of HR over the last year!

As always, there will be no sales pitches and there is no cost to join.
