Stat attack gives you the facts, figures, numbers and survey results you need to keep on top of developments and changes in sentiment in the HR and L&D industries, all in an easy to digest format. It's your regular dose of facts and figures, parcelled up for easy reading.


These statistics are from a survey of 200 HR professionals and 2000 employees on the use of manual processes in the workplace and the place of technology in replacing manual processes, conducted by Access Group and Arlington Research.

Key findings:

  • 54% of HR functions still use manual recruitment processes
  • 43% of HR functions still use manual appraisal processes

Other related findings:

  • 63% of HR functions agree that using technology on a daily basis to recognise and evaluate employees would be a valuable business tool
  • 70% of HR professionals said their organisation is likely to use continuous evaluation as a substitute to annual performance reviews
  • 80% of HR professionals said continuous evaluation has the potential to be more valuable than traditional annual reviews
  • More than half (58%) of employees said they would rather have continuous evaluation than an annual performance review

Key questions to ask yourself:

  • Do you deliver your services, such as recruitment or appraisals, in the way that employees expect and want?
  • How is the impetus for technology innovation directed within the organisation? Does it trickle down to the process level?
  • Is the movement of performance appraisal to continuous evaluation on your timeline?
