Investing in People

Increasingly, Human Resources departments must show a link between their hiring practices and the overall performance of the organization. This book provides a framework which connects human resources policies and practices to demonstrated financial and business outcomes. Cascio and Boudreau describe the LAMP (Logic, Analytics, Measures, and Processes) methodology that can be applied to demonstrate the strategic value of human resources decisions. For each topic--such as absenteeism, employee engagement, health and wellness, and turnover rates--the authors describe the variables that affect the value, and offer best practices and techniques to develop and analyze metrics in these areas. This book may be of interest to anyone developing measures on organizational effectiveness.
