Recorded Session

It is increasingly assumed that HR professionals have a working knowledge of the key tactical and operational metrics that measure the role and the value of HR. However, as HR moves into higher positions within their organizations and as managing human capital becomes more critical to their organizations success, HR professionals must increasingly also have a working knowledge of the key strategic metrics. That means that HR professionals must be able to identify and present key HR metrics that will help their organizations make critical decisions, identify and plan for risks, and improve the bottom line.  

Strategic HR metrics play an increasingly important role.

Such metrics as the Revenue-per-Employee (RPE) and the Return on Investment (ROI) are now standard measurements and ones that should be regularly measured human resources. Other metrics such as implemented impact of innovations on corporate revenue and the recruiting and employer branding effectiveness are also gaining attention. Together these and other important metrics are becoming important metrics that should be measured and watched. 

As organizations increasingly place value on business metrics, HR will need to identify and update the strategic and operational metrics that it measures and reports.

The threats and risks from human capital management issues are increasing. They are no longer measured in only fines, penalties, and awards for non-compliance. Human capital management affects keys business metrics, including the organization’s valuation and credit rating. Further, improper human capital management significantly reduces managerial prerogatives and seriously damages the organization’s reputation and employment brand. Thus, HR audits have become a critical tool in identifying problem areas and are evolving from an ad hoc audit activity to a critical element of organization's risk management and compliance processes.

Almost 100,000 discrimination charges were filed with EEOC and state Fair Employment Agencies in the fiscal year 2013 that resulted in more than $300 million in non-litigated awards. According to a study conducted by Seyfarth Shaw LLP law-firm, the top 10 private plaintiff employment discrimination class action lawsuits cost employers more than $350 million.

Unfortunately without ongoing training, supervisors, even organizations with the best intentions make mistakes and costly ones at that. This audio conference by seasoned speaker Ronald Adler is designed to help organizations provide supervisors and managers with the basic tools to help them manage their subordinates effectively and lawfully. This session also provides attendees with actionable information to reduce their organizations’ exposure to employment discrimination claims.

The purposes of an organization’s human resources are to add value to the company, to help make the company more competitive, and to greatly help the organization obtain its business objectives. The purposes of HR metrics are to help the organization discuss the value, to determine and calculate the contribution made by the human capital, and to calculate and predict employment-related risks. Hence in being a strategic business partner, HR experts have to certainly communicate the language of business. Inherent in this language is the lexicon of business measurements and metrics – including HR metrics.
