The HR Balanced Scorecard is the measurement tool. It provides the management with a tool and a process to measure the performance of people practices and the HR function from multiple perspectives:
1. Strategic Perspective
2. Operational Perspective
3. Financial Perspective
4. Customer Perspective
1. Strategic Perspective:
The results of strategic initiatives managed by the HR group. The strategic perspective focuses on the measurement of the effectiveness of major strategy-linked people goals. For instance, the business strategy called for major organizational change programs as the business faced major restructuring and multiple mergers and acquisitions. In this context, the organization’s change management capability will be a key factor in the success or failure of its execution. Therefore, measuring the ability of the business to manage change effectively is the core measure of the effectiveness of HR and will be a key strategic contribution to the future success of the business.
-Change management capability of the organization
-Organization compensation and benefit package with respect market rate.
-Organization culture survey
-HR BUDGET / ACTUAL
-HR COSTS BENCHMARK EXTERNALLY
-HR annual resource plan.
-s****s/ competency level etc…
2. Operational Perspective:
The operational tasks at which HR must excel. This piece of the Balanced Scorecard provides answers to queries about the effectiveness and efficiency in running HR processes that are vital to the organization. Examples include measuring HR processes in terms of cost, quality and cycle time such as time to fill vacancies.
-time taken to fill vacancies
-cost per recruitment promotions
-absenteeism by job category
-accident safety ratings
-training cost per employee
-training hours per employee
-average employee tenure in the company
-lost time due to injuries
-no. of recruiting advertising programs
-no. of employees put through training.
3. Financial Perspective
This perspective tries to answer questions relating to the financial measures that demonstrate how people and the HR function add value to the organization. This might include arriving at the value of the human assets and total people expenses for the company. HR
-compensation and benefits per employee
-sales per employee
-profit per employee
-cost of injuries
-HR expenses per employee
-employee '' workers compensation costs'' etc
This focuses on the effectiveness of HR from the internal customer viewpoint. Are the customers of HR satisfied with their service; are service level agreements met; do the customers think they can get better service elsewhere? Conducting an HR customer survey might typically arrive at this.
-Employee perception of the HRM
-employee perception of the company, as an employer
-customer/market perception of the company, as an employer. Etc
All four components of the scorecard are used to define and measure the effectiveness of people-management activities and how the HR function executes them. This provides a strategic measurement and management process to show the connection between a company’s business strategies and goals and its HR strategies, activities, and results. The Balanced Scorecard can provide an ideal approach to measure the contribution that human resource management makes to business success.
With the HR Balanced Scorecard in place, it can assist organizations to easily monitor the workforce indicators that are key to their business success. Such solutions enhance HR’s ability to provide counsel to line management and deliver results that make a difference to the achievement of their goals and strategy and thereby to shareholders.
The apparent and inherent values that the HR Balanced Scorecard brings include:
Measurement provides the data and facts to support business decisions, giving credibility to HR recommendations and initiatives;
Collecting and using data to make decisionsregarding retaining and motivating the
workforce, giving the organization a competitive advantage in the marketplace;
The right mix of lead and lag measures helps the business assess its strategic
alignment and progress towards its objectives;
HR will be proactive in identifying potential improvements and bringing suggestions
to the business that improve bottom-line results; and
A business and linked measurement framework focuses activity on those tasks
that contribute to organizational success. This process lifts the role of HR from being viewed purely as a cost centre to that as strategic business partner.
