Burlington, MA (PRWEB) May 4, 2006
Strategic workforce optimization, workforce intelligence, distributed HR reporting, and HR metrics for business partners are just some of the in-depth topics that will be covered at IHRIM’s one-day event, “Strategic HR Metrics: The Time is Now,” June 6 at the Hyatt San Jose in San Jose, California. The pioneer of benchmarking and metrics, Dr. Jac Fitz-enz, will leadoff the distinguished group of speakers by describing specific applications that align, stabilize and engage the workforce, helping retain customers, and growing top-line revenue.
Co-hosts Rob Eidson, Deloitte Consulting, and Noel Hannon, Hannon & Associates open the event with an overview describing how HR leaders have become more integrated with the management team, and as they align their strategies with that of the business, the role of metrics and analytics is taking on more significance and having a greater influence in the C-suite.
Attendees will hear Dan Hilbert of Valero Energy Corporation, which was recently recognized by Fortune magazine as the #3 best large company to work for…the only oil company on Fortune’s list. Hilbert will introduce the science he is pioneering – strategic workforce optimization built upon predictive workforce modeling, business workforce mapping and business workforce correlation analysis that he has implemented at Valero. Viewing HR reporting as a continuum that requires quick response to changes in market conditions and organizational strategies, Cheryl Anderson, Hewlett-Packard, will discuss the HR reporting framework at HP, as well as approaches and findings that enable them to acquire and deliver workforce information to their leadership. Intel’s Gary Iverson will discuss how HR can become a more value-added partner by dealing with strategic-level human capital, the key differentiator; and Dr. Kevin Carlson, Virginia Tech, will focus on which metrics we should be using and how to deploy them.
Presenters will show examples of both leading and lagging indicators, and explain how to recognize the differences between the two. In addition, they will examine the correlation relating certain predictors to specific outcomes. What information to gather, when to start collecting it, and how to assemble it will be discussed from a reporting point of view.
