The lifeblood of any business enterprise is its people. Yet it wasn’t until the publication of the groundbreaking book The ROI of Human Capital that there was a reliable way to quantify the contributions of people to corporate profit. Completely updated with new metrics, the book shows executives and HR professionals how to gauge human costs and productivity at three critical levels:
organizational (contributions to corporate goals) · functional (impact on process improvement) · human resources management (value added by five basic HR department activities)
The second edition contains new material on topics including corporate outsourcing, developments in behavioral science, and advances in trending and forecasting that have dramatically changed the way organizations measure the bottom line effect of employee performance. Utterly up-to-date, this is the go-to resource for organizations performing the essential task of measuring the value of their people.From the Inside Flap:
The mission of quantifying the value each employee brings to your organization is a crucial task, and not one to be taken lightly. But how do you accurately determine the contributions of your people and use that knowledge to improve your company’s overall performance?
Now in a brand new edition, The ROI of Human Capital provides you with a complete, reliable method for measuring the contributions of your people to corporate profit. Fully updated with new metrics, this long trusted resource offers a rare blend of management expertise and quantitative measurements, showing you how to gauge human costs and productivity at three critical levels:
1. Organizational. Macro-level data is the launching site of any ROI assessment system. Examples and proven formulas illustrate how to combine quantitative and perceptual measures into a corporate human capital scorecard. The book introduces you to the five key indexes of change: cost, time, quantity, quality, and human reactions.
2. Functional. This is the process arena, which typically sprawls across business units and is therefore difficult to manage and measure. A detailed five-point approach shows how to “tame” processes and add value to them, specifically in terms of service, quality, and productivity.
3. Human Capital Management. You’ll discover how to build a performance matrix that enhances the fundamental HR activities—planning, acquiring, supporting, developing, and retaining—by connecting them to the five indexes of change.
Written by Jac Fitz-enz, the man widely regarded as the inventor of human performance benchmarking, The ROI of Human Capital, which won the Society for Human Resource Management Book of the Year Award in 2001, brilliantly shows how to integrate these levels into a single, end to end system of human capital valuation reporting. It also helps you weigh the potential effects of such practices as HR restructuring, outsourcing, using contingent workers, and merging with or acquiring another company. And, not least, you will learn to create futures scorecards that can improve your ability to see over the horizon and far beyond your competition. Throughout, Fitz-enz enlivens his wealth of hard data with useful examples and a conversational, easy-to-read style.
The second edition contains new material on topics including corporate outsourcing, developments in behavioral science, and advances in trending and predicting that have dramatically changed the way organizations measure the bottom-line effect of employee performance. Utterly up-to-date, this is the go to resource for organizations performing the essential task of measuring the value of their people.
