SHRM® 2012-2013 Human Capital Benchmarking
6 Industries, 5 Geographic Regions, and 4 Employee Sizes
The purpose of this book is to provide HR professionals and other business executives with key human capital measures. In business, where the need to measure is strong, benchmarking can help identify an organization’s human capital strengths and weaknesses, create a framework for managing change and encourage employees toward continuous improvement. Yet for some HR professionals, when it comes to measuring activities around human capital, concrete measures can feel elusive. Numbers that relate to the context of a specific business, particularly the same industry, employee size, and geographic location, are usually difficult to find. But it is precisely this organizational profiling that is most beneficial to enable similar organizations to compare themselves to each other. This book contains more than 40 metrics about human capital, such as turnover, cost-per-hire and salary increases, which are detailed enough to assist HR professionals in managing HR initiatives for their organization. The data is organized by total and individual industry sectors (finance, government, health care, high-tech, durable goods manufacturing, non-durable goods manufacturing), 5 geographic regions, and by employer size.
