Staffing Metrics Evaluation

Resource: Strategic Staffing, Ch. 13

Staffing metrics can be short-term or long-term, and efficiency- or effectiveness-oriented. Short-term metrics can be used as leading indicators to gauge a company’s ability to place the right people in the right jobs at the right time. Long-term metrics are best for evaluating the effectiveness of a staffing system because they drive the financial impact of staffing for the organization.

Needs Analysis and HRIS System Design

 

A HRIS needs analysis (also called a needs assessment) should be the first step used in the planning process when selecting a HRIS. This essential activity establishes a basis for the implementation of a HRIS and can be used in conjunction with a Request for Proposal (RFP).
