Metrics Don't Lie But Is Your Staff Lying About Your Metrics?

2016 SHRM Talent Management Conference & Exposition
Workplace Application: You will learn what metrics to gather, how to gather them, which to use internally and which to share with your C-level business partners.

An increased number of organizations are paying attention to their HR-related metrics. Unfortunately, approximately 76 percent of talent acquisition leaders admit that their organizations do a poor job of using metrics. Why? Some are unaware of what metrics they should be gathering and others don't know how to use the metrics they have. This session will walk you through the types of metrics you should be gathering for your internal use and which you should provide to senior management. This session will show you:

·         How to determine which historical, real-time, and forward-looking metrics are important to your organization.  

·         How to gather these metrics in an efficient and effective manner. 

·         Which metrics to use internally in your HR department and which should be shared externally with your C-level business partners.
