Three experts in Human Resources introduce a measurement system that convincingly showcases how HR impacts business performance. Drawing from the authors' ongoing study of nearly 3,000 firms, this book describes a seven-step process for embedding HR systems within the firm's overall strategy—what the authors describe as an HR Scorecard—and measuring its activities in terms that line managers and CEOs will find compelling. Analyzing how each element of the HR system can be designed to enhance firm performance and maximize the overall quality of human capital, this important book heralds the emergence of HR as a strategic powerhouse in today's organizations.

Authors Brian E. Becker, Mark A. Huselid and Dave Ulrich teach human resources (HR) executives that everything their departments do can influence their companies' profits - but not just in terms of their administrative actions. HR can have a meaningful impact on the corporation by developing employees' in-depth awareness of the business, studying the drivers that generate the employee behaviors that move the company's strategy forward and establishing a new core competency model for HR professionals. We strongly recommend this book as essential for HR executives - and as an illuminating text for other corporate leaders, right up to CEOs. While your company's HR department may already measure performance, chances are those measurements don't evaluate the real dollars-and-cents impact on the bottom line. In fact, this book shows how to determine what to measure with your HR Scorecard, how to measure it and how to report back in fiscal terms that upper management can appreciate. This is an affirmation and a roadmap for everyone who ever wanted to prove that HR, strategically deployed, can significantly influence a company's performance and profitability.Was this review helpful?
