Print Friendly, PDF & Email

It’s not everyday that you get something for nothing – especially important benchmark business information.  Don’t miss out on gaining access to some of the most valuable metrics and benchmarks for your company and industry from this global survey.  This free, easy-to-use survey will definitively measure your organization’s workforce productivity and ROI, benchmarking it by industry as well as outlining corresponding world-class human capital performance levels.

Why Benchmark?

Benchmarking and Standards for the Workforce – For most financial ratio metrics, there are two primary purposes:

  1. To understand, manage and predict financial results of the organisation, and
  2. Comparing or benchmarking them with competitors and peers in the same or similar industries, particularly for best in class performing organizations.

For example, if an organization has an asset return ratio of 3.2 or a return on invested capital of 10%, it’s hard to know if those numbers are competitive unless you know how your competition is performing on those same metrics.  If competitors are at 4.2 and 18% respectively, your organization may be trouble.  Then, you need to manage the organization back to acceptable performance.  Simply put, benchmarking analysis allows you and your organization a great deal of insight into where you stand year-on-year, and competitively.  It is also an amazing tool for highlighting where potential improvements will have the greatest impact on company performance.

HCMI’s cutting-edge Human Capital Financial Statements – HCF$TM allow companies to quantify and benchmark key Human Capital metrics.  Much like a balance sheet or an income statement, HCMI’s Human Capital Financial Statements allow you the ability to measure, and more importantly, accurately assess the impact of human capital on financial performance.  This new survey blends the best of both worlds easily into one easy to use report – custom made for you and your company.  You supply the data – we supply the answers.  It’s that easy!
