End-to-End HR Performance Benchmarks: Metrics That Will Help Turn the HR Cost Center into a Productivity Driver
Date:9/7/2007

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Sept. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Human Resources continues to be a big cost center, one of the functions business leaders look at first for cost reductions and productivity improvements.

So how can HR groups operate more effectively and efficiently?

A comprehensive HR metrics study by benchmarking leader Best Practices, LLC has the answers. The study provides one common set of performance metrics for your key HR functions: Staffing, Benefits, Relocation, LOA, FMLA, Workers' Compensation and Medical Services.

For example, where do companies spend most of their HR cost? According to the study, the vast majority of costs were spent on internal labor -- ranging from 55% to 82%. Outsourcing costs are the second highest at between 13 and 31% of all staffing costs. Interestingly, the largest companies in the benchmark had the most substantial investment in systems, at 32% of the total cost.

The new "HR Resourcing Excellence Series" focuses on service offerings, organizational structures, staffing levels, functional costs, activities outsourced or shared, cycle times, and effectiveness measures (e.g., end-user satisfaction) for key HR functions.
