According to recent research
, "procedural fairness," in an organisation leads to increased employee loyalty, even when the employee doesn't get the best deal for themselves. Human Capital Management systems provide fairer and more transparent people management capability to the management team and can therefore result in improved employee engagement. Research by Australia's Professor Pauline Stanton strongly suggests that increased employee engagement is a significant driver of employee performance. To get better employee performance, most businesses and organisations therefore need more transparent and fairer people management systems.
