The Hackett Group, a leading global strategy and operations consulting firm, recently surveyed senior HR executives to gauge current HR organization capabilities and priorities. While the results revealed a generally positive picture of contemporary HR capabilities, one glaring weakness that emerged is the failure of most organizations to adequately leverage HR metrics for measuring performance. For example:
Under-use of HR metrics not only makes it more difficult for HR organizations to demonstrate their value to the enterprise, it also makes it more difficult to make sound strategic and resource allocation decisions. For example, absent rigorous use of HR metrics, HR organizations on tight budgets will struggle to make optimal choices about which programs and initiatives to pursue and which to postpone, and fail to make a compelling business case for change.
