Metrics are the language of organizational management. If you do not speak the same language as your audience, you cannot influence. Metrics have become a requirement for any human resources department to show its value to the organization, but in order for metrics to be effective they need to be the right metrics and aligned with business objectives. The goals of this course are to demystify metrics, to show you their benefits and what differentiates a good metric from a great one. We will then provide you with some tips for getting started and how to avoid the common criticisms of metrics.

After completing this course you will be able to:

“These were some of the best e-learning courses I have taken to date. The presentation of the material and examples used were very detailed and helped with understanding the concepts. I can’t wait to use these back at work.”

— Brandon, Director of HR

“For the metrics portion, I found it useful to look at the types of information that may be useful to present. I liked the section on benchmarking and how to avoid it because of the apples-to-oranges issue. Made good sense to me. Also, the comparison of benchmarking to strategic metrics was great. The simple explanations of what metrics are was helpful. Most of us know them on a basic level but don’t use them correctly or enough. This illustrated how to use them to show that HR is not just a cost that the organization has to carry, but that it can be repositioned as a partner that helps the company meet its goals.”

— Susan, HR Officer
