ABSTRACT
This article presents the recent surveys conducted by Croner Consulting in Great Britain concerning personnel management, as of February 2004. Despite new legislation, many employers may still not be taking equal pay seriously. The Equal Pay Questionnaire introduced by the government means employees can challenge their employer to determine whether they are being paid less than a colleague for the same job. Croner advises employers to treat men and women equally in their terms and conditions of employment. New statistics also show that managing redundancy tops the list of human resource concerns for employers. Employers must follow a fair process when it comes to making redundancies. Dismissals must comply with the definition for redundancy and failure to do so would make the dismissal unfair. A legal framework is in place to protect employees from unfair dismissal. Another survey has found that employees are reluctant to take benefits, such as flexible working, as they fear it may hinder their career prospects. Employees think taking benefits to them may suggest they are not dedicated enough to their work and company. A further poll shows that almost three-quarters of employers are not monitoring the position of women in their workforce.
