HR Scorecard for Effective HR Management
By Ms. Jivaranee

Although it cannot be denied that the management of people is becoming more critical in today’s globalized business environment. However, most organizations are still holding on to the perspective that HR activities cannot be measured as human activities are too subjective to be deemed relevant for measurement. On the other hand, organizations need to ensure that the entire organization is aligned and focused on the vision, mission, direction, goals, and objectives of the company. Therefore, many organizations have opted to adopt the Balanced Scorecard (BSC) to serve as a tool for helping the organization to manage the organization more effectively via the employ of relevant measures. Linked with the BSC is the concept of HR Scorecard which is focused on how to enhance the performance and management of HR capabilities.

Objective: The objective of the module is to provide HR Professionals with the tool to assess and evaluate the performance of the HR Department in order to provide the strategic impetus required for viewing HR as a strategic partner to management.

Delivery Methodologies: Facilitation, discussions, case studies, and practical exercises to assist in retentive learning
