Fifth of HR would leave job over poor leadership

A fifth (21%) of HR business partners, HR managers and other sector-specific professionals would consider leaving their job because of poor leadership, new research has found.

Yet, Randstad’s poll of almost 9,000 employees across the UK found that HR is not the only department suffering from poor quality management. Almost a quarter (24%) of customer service advisors and sales managers said that they would leave their current job because of poor leadership.
