“The tools and techniques are relevant to today’s business climate. The presentation of the material and the examples used were very detailed and helped with understanding the concepts. These are tools we can really use, not just theories!”

“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
