Firms must break bad habits if they want to improve relationship with employees

Workplaceinsight | March 07, 2019

To select, engage and retain the best talent, companies are going to have to break their entrenched bad habits, according to a new report from The Myers-Briggs Company. It claims that its Global Trends Report (registration) sets out how businesses can select the best employees, provide effective leadership and help their people to work together efficiently and harmoniously, despite a rapidly changing and increasingly complex business landscape. Women are more likely than men to take a values-driven, people-focused approach to decision-making. However, while the proportion of men with this approach varies minimally between occupational levels, for women, the higher the occupational level, the less likely they are to be focused on people and values. This suggests that it may be more difficult for some women to be promoted, and that for organisations that do have women at higher levels, a values-driven approach to decision-making may be underrepresented. This perspective is usually lacking in leadership.

Paycor Doubles Down on Leadership Mission with New Tagline

Paycor HCM, Inc | July 12, 2022

Paycor HCM, Inc. ("Paycor") (Nasdaq: PYCR) unveiled a new mission-driven tagline that aligns to their focus on supporting HR and business leaders. Paycor recognizes the disproportionate impact leaders have on employee engagement and retention. The company's mission, offerings, and business model are designed to empower leaders to develop winning teams. Paycor is now enhancing its messaging to better encompass the company's mission and what business leaders need now more than ever. In Paycor's recent survey, HR in 2023: Insights & Predictions, retention was the primary priority amongst company and business leaders, with many struggling to address this concern. The workforce has undergone tumultuous times, with nearly 33% of employees in the U.S. considering quitting their jobs. Additionally, expectations of work and definitions of culture have all dramatically changed since 2020. Now more than ever, leaders are desperate for tools and information on how to attract and retain talent, which continues to be top of mind as we enter bear market territory. In response to these market needs, Paycor has been focused on their mission of setting up companies for future success and empowering front-line leaders with insights, solutions, and tools purpose-built to improve employee engagement and retention. Paycor is adopting a new tagline to better align with their mission and offerings. "By introducing our new Empowering Leaders tagline, our mission is clearer than ever before, As we continue to evolve to meet the ever-changing business needs, we are committed to helping empower frontline leaders to be more effective so they can deliver enhanced business results for their organizations." -Raul Villar Jr., Chief Executive Officer of Paycor. The new tagline debut follows Paycor's recognition as a Nacha Certified status for a second consecutive year. Additionally, the thriving company was named a winner of the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky Top Workplaces 2022 Award in February. About Paycor Paycor's human capital management (HCM) platform modernizes every aspect of people management, from recruiting, onboarding and payroll to career development and retention, but what really sets us apart is our focus on leaders.
