We're Only Human 13 - Calculating the ROI of Human Resources

Host: Ben Eubanks

Guest: Mary Ila Ward

ROI. Measurement. Data. Analytics.

Each of these words has the power to strike fear in the hearts of many HR pros, because let's face it--most of us didn't get into this profession because we're awesome at math, right? Seriously though, we can't deny the power of data and evidence to prove the value HR can provide.

Ben has often said that HR provides plenty of value to the organization in most cases, but HR pros just really terrible about calculating and proving that value. If that concept resonates with you, then this episode is going to help change all of that.  

In this fun conversation with Mary Ila Ward, owner of Horizon Point Consulting, Ben discusses some of the underlying fears that HR has about being measured (hint: measurement isn't always an indicator of your own personal performance). In addition, they explore three case study examples of how to figure out the ROI of human resources in an easy, step-by-step manner so anyone can grasp the concept.
