WorldatWork Finds HR Pros Highly Knowledgeable About Total Rewards Research
(November 29, 2010) A new study by WorldatWork finds that human resources practitioners are highly knowledgeable of the academic research in total rewards and successfully apply many of the concepts in the workplace. The study, The Connection Between Academic Research Findings and Total Rewards Professionals, was based on survey responses from 641 total rewards professionals from around the world.
Respondents were commonly aware of the academic findings on a broad range of total rewards topics, even on items outside of their current role. A majority of respondents correctly identified eight of the 10 true/false statements.
The following statements were correctly answered as TRUE by at least 73% of respondents:
"My grandfather used to say life is too short to learn from your own mistakes," said Brian Moore, the study's author and research director. "To get the best outcomes for yourself or your organization you have to be able to quickly figure out where things have gone astray for others and why; and that's where the combination of case studies, common practices, and controlled scientific studies can come together to create something more powerful than any of them can deliver alone."
