How Performance and Implemetation of HR policies can impact the entire Company’s Growth

There is no universal success recipe for business anymore, what may be succesful at one point of time will not even work out in today’s context. But there are few intangible factors which contribute to the success of the company in a long-term perspective.HR management is one such vital factor as any company is associated with the people who are working there.

Even companies who have the best talent can fail to achieve success because they cannot work together in an efficient and productive manner.Hence many companies are investing in efficient HR departmental policies, thereby ensuring the productivity of the employees, which in turn helps the companies to expand more.

HR is about learning and a growth perspective which deals with improvement of personnel, professional skills, knowledge, organizational  climate, employee satisfaction etc.This in turn helps to implement a balanced scorecard on a departmental level. Something that is good for human resource department is good for the company in general, as it’s about simultaneously ensuring employee and organizational productivity.

This is where Strategic HR can help as they show cause and effect ties between indicators of different categories/perspectives, For example if company decides to focus on employee hire turnover rate, strategic HR along with the help of applicant tracking system will connect these indicators with other measures and goals in a balanced scorecard metric.

When implementing a sound HR Framework it is really important to keep in mind that you are dealing with people and is really difficult to measure certain human resource management things along with numbers.

Productivity Workforce measuring: – Make it a reality

Quality of Hire and workforce productivity measure is always a much discussed issue in today’ stance. Recruiters are of the opinion that quality of hire and the workforce productivity cannot be pre-determined as a lot of factors come into consideration. Technology, process implementations, organizational metrics make up for a lot on the internal factors in measuring workforce productivity.

Workforce productivity is intertwined with a number of internal and external factors, which the organization has to take in mind. The organization should see that the ability to influence and deliver by the workforce is indistinguishable as a valuable resource to complete work on the organization’s behalf.

Workforce productivity in today’s context is becoming a trend we must respond to. Not only is it dramatically changing the organizational design, It is changing the nature of work itself.

Initially the HR function played a miniscule role in the transition. However in today’s context HR and personnel departments have adopted a focused based compliance hands-off approach, opting to tell managers and the management what they can do to find innovative solutions to ensure higher workforce productivity. This has created a stance wherein accountability for planning, sourcing and managing workforce productivity is taken care completely by the organization.

Talent management systems that ignore the “Total workforce productivity model” should be indicative of a solid leadership and a sound performance management process. This is because it helps organizations build a new suite of talent management offerings that caters to the needs of the total workforce productivity and thereby navigate the scenario from the murky, protectionist regulatory landscape of workforce non- productivity.

End of the day, Workforce productivity and performance management is ultimately about setting clear expectations and evaluating whether procured work, goods, and services actually perform at or above the level expected.
