Speech: HR & Training Metrics
by Antonios Daskos
Human Resource (HR) and Training metrics are measurements used to determine the value and effectiveness of HR and Training initiatives. It is often required of Human Resource and Training departments to show the organizational value of money and time spent on human resources management training and activities. HR’s challenge is to provide business leaders with actionable information that helps them make decisions about investments, marketing strategies and new products. HR and Training metrics are a vital way to quantify the cost and the impact of employee programs and HR processes and measure the success (or failure) of HR and Training initiatives. They enable a company to track year-to year-trends and changes in these critical variables. It is how organizations measure the value of the time and money spent on HR and Training activities in their organization. In this session you will get a guideline of the most important HR & Training metrics you need to use.
