How an organization defines success, drives what it values. What that organization values, it measures, what it measures drives organizational behavior and the allocation of resources.
A variety of metrics (financial and non-financial) are used to evaluate the effectiveness of organizational strategies. Therefore, understanding and using HR metrics and analytics is an essential competency for human resources professionals. In addition, HR must have the ability to communicate and influence top management using data and insights that will enable the organization to achieve its business goals.
In this class participants will learn the foundations of measurement, the financial principles of how a business works, how business models affect what is measured and how analytics impacts business decisions. You do not have to be a math whiz, we will provide you with the formulas, and give you the opportunity to apply measurement concepts to realistic business scenarios and problem solving activities.
