Responses to frequently asked questions about the HR function
In my last blog post, I wrote about new APQC tools that can help HR assess its past performance and make plans for the future. In this post, I want to present some new APQC articles that answer common questions about the HR function—questions that our members often ask us as they assess HR performance and set HR plans.
Click on a question below to reveal the corresponding APQC article. The answers provided in the articles were culled from an analysis of APQC’s Open Standards Benchmarking data for the HR organization.
- How much should we budget for HR?
- To whom should the head of HR report?
- How many HR employees do we need?*
- How should HR deliver its services?
- How do our HR costs compare?
- How can we measure the value of our workforce?
What other questions does your organization have regarding HR function structure and performance? Did you know that members have self-service, on-demand access to many human capital management benchmarks via the Benchmarks on Demand tool located on APQC’s website?
