Business runs on numbers. Effectively educate the business units you support on how HR adds value by using reports and qualitative information.

Led by the legendary Jac Fitz-enz who introduced metrics to human resources in 1978. Fitz-enz was recently cited as one of 50 people in the past 50 years who has “significantly changed what HR does and how it does it.”

What You Will Learn

  • Metrics are most useful when they’re focused on strategic goals
  • Metrics are credible business tools only when directly aligned with strategic goals
  • Metrics are even more useful when they show the interdependence between business units

Position HR as a value-added partner
