New Directions in HR Metrics: The Newest, Best HR Metric Capability Yet Created

Today, new HR analytics related to translating talent management strategies into action is about to become a business phenomenon and a challenge to every HR executive who strives to achieve greater excellence in the job of managing human capital.

Now, you can put the latest analytic-driven HR metrics to work in your organization. Once you define the right analytics, you can collect the relevant data.

But don't be deceived. Although the basic concepts are very easy to understand, it's not easy to execute without the right capabilities and procedures.

That's where this Webinar comes in. It's designed to take you from textbook learning to practical hands-on execution in your own organization.

The program shows you how to identify, manage and track the right HR and talent management measurements.


Building scorecards often lead to choosing metrics that are easily available and “good enough.”

The negative consequences of doing this range from diverting attention away from the outcomes that really matter, to managing the business or workforce counter-productively.

In this session, Dr. Alec Levenson details how to build strategic metrics from what is now called targeted analytics. Targeted analytics identify the drivers of behavior and organizational processes that are the foundation of performance and effectiveness.

Dr. Levenson demonstrates how these analytics can proactively forecast how individual employees and groups will respond to changes in job design, processes, and incentives.
