Get Free Human Capital Management Metrics

APQC has teamed with Workforce Management and IBM to offer eight fully funded human capital management benchmarking assessments that can help HR professionals determine potential cost-saving opportunities and maximize efficiencies in HR.

Because of today's tough economy, HR must operate as efficiently and effectively as possible and really provide value to the business as a strategic partner. Increase your productivity and optimize your HR processes by joining more than 1,800 survey respondents in benchmarking human capital management performance in the areas below. In return for submitting a benchmarking assessment, you will receive a confidential, custom benchmarking report that compares your organization's current performance with that of the median and top performers both within your industry (for those in targeted industries) and outside your industry.

You can:
