Key Metrics You Need in Your HR Reports - 2017 Edition

Posted by Mathew French on 22 August 2017

We recently discovered a fantastic article on LinkedIn that outlined 70 HR metrics you should be measuring in your business. One of our most popular blog posts ever is a 2013 post 'Key Metrics You Need in Your HR Reports,' so after stumbling upon this great article, we thought we'd do a 2017 edit to keep you up to date with HR best practice. What was also interesting in this article is that the author has offered for free, a breathtaking array of excel spreadsheets related to all manner of calculating, tracking and reporting HR metrics. Very generous, very useful AND in 2017, a total waste of time AND money (money that you would pay an employee to input and update the information to provide results for all the metrics). You might think that is a pretty mean thing to say, but having said this before, I’m going to say it again. If you’re still using excel spreadsheets to calculate your HR metrics or manage your HR processes, you’re living in the dark ages AND wasting precious time AND money. Today’s HR platforms give users the capacity to access these types of metrics at the click of your mouse – no updating of spreadsheets required. There. I’ve said it, now let’s take a look at the categories of key metrics you need in your HR reports – 2017 edit.

HR Software Case Study: Cloud HR Software Success Story

Posted by Mathew French on 9 May 2017

Business is changing, and your HR and recruitment should be at the forefront of this change. If your business is still reliant on paper-based systems, and many man-hours of administration, then you have a lot of options for improvement. But despite what your gut might tell you, change can be both quick and painless. Take Premier Technologies for example. An Australian owned and operated Cloud IT Contact Centre Provider, they would be classed as a medium sized business with 60 full-time employees. Premier Technologies wanted their HR, Processes and Systems updated, and Subscribe-HR's People Management Cloud Software was used to do this. From Talent sourcing to Employee Onboarding and Payroll integration.

The Learning Curve Is The Earning Curve

Posted by Mathew French on 7 February 2017

According to Bersin, providing Employees the opportunity for learning and development in the workplace has become a paramount attractor in the job market, particularly given the number of Millennials in the workforce and their focus on just that. It has been posited that today's youth will potentially have 70+ year careers, and they understand that their ability to grow, learn and progress is perhaps the most important driver of their future earnings potential and job satisfaction. Companies that focus their culture on career growth and learning, outperform their peers in innovation, long term growth, and employee retention.

Which HR Trends Matter To Your Business In 2017?

Posted by Mathew French on 19 January 2017

At this time of year, there are a lot of articles floating around which profess to know the top trends for HR during the coming year. Sometimes these articles are valid (and backed up by a significant amount of data), and sometimes there is a lot of crystal ball gazing going on. Ultimately, it is becoming more and more difficult to accurately predict future HR trends, however, there are a few annual reports that warrant investigation. One of those reports is Deloitte's annual Human Capital Trends report. The 2016 offering outlines the opinions and perspectives of 7,000 HR and business leaders. That's a significant amount of data gathered from a global cohort, so it is worthwhile taking a look at the picture those 7,000 respondents painted about the likely short and long-term future of business from the HR perspective.

One of the most challenging areas for HR is Performance Management. It is perhaps, one of the least progressive areas in HR because it is one of the most challening to deploy and measure.
