Strategic HR: Practically Speaking Scorecards and Dashboards

Thursday 4:00 – 5:00 PM

Session Description

Business pundits, experts, our peers and even our bosses all tell us that we need to be “more strategic” and that “HR needs to drive more value”, but on very few occasions we get the details. This session will discuss the realities HR is living and how we can mitigate them in everyday functions. Most importantly, the session will go through examples from TWO real companies: one that built a real life HR dashboard and another that built a holistic scorecard to align HR efforts to the goals of the organization. Attendees will take away these two templates, which can immediately be used within their companies. At the end of the session, participants will be able to: build a tactical HR dashboard that provides visibility into people processes, build a strategic dashboard that covers recruiting, performance, learning, engagement and service delivery, tie HR efforts to business objectives and prove the value of HR to the company.
