This book offers a different way to measure human resources' strategic value to company success, by thinking about the contributions of individuals to business success. It makes the case that the role of human resources is increasingly important, as company assets become more intangible and reliant on intellectual capital, and provides a framework that focuses on identifying where human resources issues are performance drivers - or impediments - to strategy implementation. The guide develops a measurement system that provides valid, reliable indicators to human resources' contribution to the success of stategy implementation, and ultimately to firm performance. Recommendations included are supported by clear and persuasive examples, as well as the author's survey of 2,800 firms.

- Publisher Providing the Tools and systems required for leading a "measurement managed" HR architecture, this important book heralds the emergence of human resources as a strategic powerhouse in today's organizations. Three experts in the field outline a powerful measurement system that highlights the indisputable role HR can play as both a prime source of sustainable competitive advantage and a key driver of value creation. They draw from an ongoing study of nearly 3,000 firms to outline a seven-step process they call an HR Scorecard, specifically designed to embed human resources systems within a firm's overall strategy and manage the HR architecture as a strategic asset. Building on the proven Balanced Scorecard model, they also show how to link HR's results to measures-such as profitability and shareholder value-that line managers and senior executives will understand and respect. The authors argue that human resources's strategic role begins with designing an HR architecture-the HR function, the HR system, and strategic employee behaviors-that relentlessly emphasizes and reinforces the implementation of the firm's strategy. Using compelling examples from a variety of leading companies, they explain how to develop and implement an HR Scorecard in order to both manage the HR architecture as a strategic asset, as well as measure the contribution of that asset to firm performance.
