Human Resources KPIs: Benchmarking HR Performance

Human Resources KPIs: Benchmarking HR Performance

Why Attend

How can you manage what you do not or cannot measure? This course attempts to inspire Human Resources (HR) professionals to stop just "doing" and start "delivering". This cannot be done unless they take the necessary steps to measure the effectiveness and efficiency of their HR functions, benchmark the results internally and externally, and consequently design initiatives for continuous improvement. In this course, you will learn what Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are, their characteristics and how they should be used and reported. This course will also present and discuss over 50 HR KPIs that can be easily used in your job. Furthermore, the course will demonstrate that by measuring your HR results, benchmarking them and taking action to improve them, you will be playing the four fundamental roles of an HR business partner: strategic partner, administrative expert, employee champion, and change agent. The ultimate "take away" of this course is the design of an HR balanced scorecard that will allow the HR department to contribute to the achievement of company strategic goals.
