Human Resources Fun Facts
23. 54% of companies don’t have workplace romance rules.
Workplace romance is not a new thing, but most companies don’t have a verbal or written policy that will address it (54% of them). This doesn’t mean that romance is allowed in the workplace; it just means that the behavior is not a big issue.
24. 58% of new hires will stay if there’s a structured onboarding program.
Recent onboarding statistics suggest that the majority of new employees (58%) will spend at least three years in the company if they’ve gone through a structured onboarding process. It looks like this type of program evokes positive feelings between the interviewee and the company.
On the other hand, a detailed onboarding program prepares and informs employees about every detail on their job position and organizational structure. It can be concluded that people like when they are well instructed and acknowledged, which is positively affecting their loyalty.
25. 25% want to do jobs they’re best at.
When it comes to employee development statistics, it is clear that people (25% of them) will perform better and grow in a professional way if they’re allowed to do what they do best.
This number is lower than expected, probably because most employees have high scores on agreeability, which can be seen as a positive trait by management, but is a characteristic that leads to burn out and demotivation at some point.
26. The ethnically-diverse workforce is 35% more engaged.
While gender-diverse companies have 15% better performance, other diversity and inclusion statistics suggest that the ethnically-diverse ones are even better. Namely, these teams are performing 35% better than those assembled of only one ethnicity.
It looks like diversity, both gender and ethnic, are positively affecting motivation, engagement, and loyalty among employees, and this is a clear sign that this practice should be widely accepted and advocated.
27. 92% of managers think they’re doing a great job.
Among numerous small business HR statistics, there’s one that is pretty interesting. Almost every manager, 92 out of 100, feels like they’re doing an excellent job managing subordinates. What makes this finding funny is the fact that only 67% of workers agree with that.
