HR communication and marketing statistics

Summer is coming to a close and with the advent of graduate inductions just round the corner; we waste no time in bringing you the latest fast facts. This month we reveal:

54 per cent of executives say cultural issues are the most difficult matters faced during a merger1

Law firm Allen & Overy research revealed lack of planning is largely attributed to such complex HR matters.

34 per cent of UK online users have undertaken a digital detox2

That’s the equivalent of a staggering 15 million people in total, as highlighted in Ofcom’s The Communications Market report.

A staggering 69 per cent of respondents say the behaviour of managers increases stress in the workplace3

A survey by Metlife of 1,211 full-time employees also revealed that 45 per cent said stress caused by management resulted in taking extended time off work.

57 per cent of people still visit a shop before they buy online4

An interesting comparison when compared to 29 per cent who research and buy online only, as denoted in the xAd’s UK Mobile Path to Purchase report.

56 per cent of HR professionals consider an applicant’s online reputation when making decisions about hiring5

With a plethora of candidate information available online there is increasing pressure to manage and secure social media profiles more effectively.
