The purposes of an organization’s human resources are to add value, make the organization more competitive, help the organization achieve its business objectives, and manage key risks. The purposes of HR metrics are to help communicate the value-added, demonstrate the contribution of human capital, and measure employment-related risks. In this environment, the key issue in becoming a strategic partner is for HR professionals to understand and speak the language of business. Inherent in that language is the lexicon of business measurements and metrics ─ including HR metrics.
Thus, HR professionals increasingly play a role in helping their organizations develop and maintain an understanding of the key strategic and operational issues affecting their organizations. They have become a critical element in helping their organizations manage this key asset. This webinar discusses the use of HR metrics as a core competency, reviews the role HR metrics play in helping the organization make critical business decisions, describes the calculation of employment practices liability risk exposure, and provides a listing of some of the more widely used HR metrics.
