Human Capital Measurement

A knowledge economy means people are the profit lever. The key to sustaining a competitive advantage is the productivity of the workforce.¨ Without hard data on human capital activity and productivity, there is less of a chance of competing effectively. We can help your company to develop a custom human capital measurement scorecard. Developing measurement methods of workforce health allows companies to: 

  • Make more informed business decisions using human capital data and information
  • Provide executive leadership with periodic and relevant data that is an indicator of operational and financial success
  • Understand linkages between key metrics (e.g. relationship between turnover and employee commitment)
  • Guide leadership to develop countermeasures designed to reverse poor performance
  • Become predictive rather than reactive about human capital
  • Raise the “red flag” when performance begins to deteriorate

Employee Relations can be all consuming. Employees have a need to talk: whether it is about their performance, their manager, benefits, or other challenges in life. A manager's schedule can easily be one employee appointment after another. We can provide guidance to resolve and prevent employee relation issues which will lead to a more productive company and an engaged team.
