Why are HR Metrics Having Such a Bad Time?
A recent report by Visier, “The State of Workforce Analytics 2014," states:
“Spreadsheets (48%) and HRIS reports (25%) are the most commonly used tools for workforce metrics and analytics – with low satisfaction rates. Only 5% are satisfied with spreadsheets, and just 15% with HRIS reports”
From their research, Visier produced the below model for assessing the impact of HR metrics and analytics.
You can improve your HR metrics by following some of the recommendations:
- Process is easier to measure – but MEASUREMENT SHOULD FOLLOW PURPOSE - it’s easy to measure processes like recruitment, retention and development. It’s difficult to measure the motivation behind the process. So we end up measuring what we know we can easily measure rather than establishing the purpose behind the measurement.
