How it works

In emerging practices, the focus shifts from process efficiency (learners per course, cost per hire) and effectiveness (% leaders completing leadership training program, time to fill) to the business reasons these processes exist - to secure, manage, motivate and improve workforce capabilities.

Some of these include: "Which top performers are at risk of leaving the company?", "What is the relationship between annual increases and top performer retention?", or "What college majors or previous company experiences influence who becomes a successful executive here?" These types of questions become provisions for more advanced HR metrics that are more closely aligned with business needs.
