(From PRWEB) -- The Human Capital Institute (HCI) in association with Development Dimensions International (DDI), global talent management expert, announced last week at the Human Capital Summit in Tucson, Arizona, the recent results of a new research report, Mid-Level Managers: The Bane and Salvation of Organizations. The report focused on the strategic importance of mid-level management as companies recover from the worst recession in decades.
In recent history, mid-level managers have been recognized as vital ambassadors between senior leadership and the front lines of a business. Because mid-level managers have such crucial roles in their organizations' success or failure, because they are largely responsible for strategy execution HCI and DDI set out to gather "point in time" information by surveying human resource leaders to understand the current set of issues creating strain within organizations.
"This is a unique survey that opens a window into a critical component of the management structure at a time when they have faced tremendous pressure during the recession," says Michael DeMarco, HCI's Director of Research, "Ultimately, the survey results will help organizations answer many questions about mid-level managers as the recovery takes shape."
