CHAPEL HILL, N.C., April 17 /PRNewswire/ -- HR is at the core of achieving organizational effectiveness. As such, human resources executives face a growing challenge from their business partners -- increasing efficiency while meeting ever-changing business needs such as improving talent management, finding the best resources in an ever shrinking candidate pool, meeting regulatory changes, dealing with ever-increasing benefits costs and changing business models. Many HR groups have championed the shared services model to meet some of these needs, while others have turned to outsourcing or off-shoring, and new technologies to handle their challenges. All the while, companies have turned to benchmarking as a critical tool to gauge their efficiencies and effectiveness. The challenges with the use of benchmarking are many including comparability, adequate depth and breath, and expense of these efforts. Still more critical is applying these benchmarking tools across a myriad of fundamentally different industries and a broad array of different functions within HR. Finding one common set of performance metrics across these has proven to be difficult. To assist HR in meeting these challenges, Best Practices, LLC has developed an end-to-end HR benchmarking report "HR Resourcing Excellence" that focuses on the core metrics needed to manage the function and are that can drive real business change.
