Future of Leadership: Leadership skills, mental health, and training programmes
In the first and second parts of our study, we have shown how important candidates find the application process and their future place of work. However, we have not looked at the impact of the corona pandemic on the working environment. How should managers lead employees through virtual meetings in the future, what skills do they still lack, and do applicants and HR managers view this similarly?
The respondents (3,561 applicants, 251 HR managers) provided information about:
- their managers and their competencies and deficits,
- the influence of leaders on the mental health of employees,
- and potential measures to prepare leadership for future challenges.
Fire or Hire – what do applicants think?
Many applicants favor replacing current leadership with new leadership or dispensing them entirely. HR doesn’t is as stringent and counts on training programmes for managers.
