Many HR professionals spend their days focused on internal challenges: finding new ways to motivate and retain workers, enforcing policies that comply with federal and state employment laws, and trying to dig out from under a mountain of paperwork that never seems to get any smaller.
However, your CEO and the marketplace are judging you by a different standard: the bottom line. Does your business view HR as a profit driver - or a cost center? Can you truly measure the effectiveness of your workforce in objective, hard numbers? Have you learned the best ways to communicate the value of HR to your bosses and the entire organization?
In this 90-minute audio conference recording, we’ll teach you how to measure the bottom-line value of HR in your business. We’ll spell out the do's and don’ts of using metrics to optimize your investments in recruiting, training, and motivating employees. And, you’ll learn the most effective strategies for putting HR measurements in place that won’t distract you from the day-to-day service you provide to your workers.
You and your colleagues will learn:
- Why it’s absolutely critical, in today’s tough economy, to place bottom-line values on what you do in HR
- The most important HR metrics you should measure in your organization (with detailed explanations of the math involved)
- How to build data gathering into your everyday procedures, so that the HR numbers you need will be there automatically
- Steps you can take to benchmark your HR metrics against other organizations (and to compare the numbers for your internal HR initiatives against those you outsource)
- What you can do in 2009 to begin communicating your HR numbers more effectively to your organization’s top leaders and executives
- The most common mistakes employers make with HR metrics – and how you can avoid repeating them
