Remote, office and non-desktop workers — such as hourly employees who perform manufacturing, shipping and other non-computerized work — all share remarkably similar human resources department and employer expectations — which include more frequent HR communication, according to a new report.
Regardless of their work environment, employees believe effective communication is a critical component of a positive work experience; however, when asked how employers made them feel, just 16 percent of respondents said they were connected and engaged.
Nearly half of non-desktop, office and remote workers reported they disagreed, strongly disagreed or felt neutral about HR contact making them feel more informed or engaged at work.
Seventy-five percent of employees from all three segments indicated HR communication happens never or rarely, or only sometimes at their organization.
