Performance Measurement Promotes Effective Management
Effective management is based on a foundation of effective measurement, and almost everything else is based on that. Bain & Company director emeritus and customer loyalty expert Frederick Reichheld unequivocally put it this way: "Measurement systems create the basis for effective management."[7]
As Figure 1-1 illustrates, measurement determines what management does, and it works—through management—to touch every part of the organization, including compensation and rewards. Figure 1-1: MEASUREMENT: THE MOST FUNDAMENTAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM.
Organizations are conglomerations of many systems. Measurement is actually the most fundamental system of all. When the "measurement system" works well, management tends to manage (and reward) the right things—and the desired results will occur. The measurement system—for good or ill—triggers virtually everything that happens in an organization, both strategic and tactical. This is because all the other organizational systems are ultimately based on what the measurement system is telling the other systems to do. Unfortunately, as we will see, most organizations do not have one integrated measurement system, but rather many measurement systems located in functional "silos" and not well interconnected.
I am continually amazed how many leaders pursue the wrong things— and it almost always comes down to what is being measured. The wrong measures tend to trigger the wrong activities—because they represent what people "see." Then these wrong activities generate the wrong results—no matter how well-executed the activities are. Most individuals and organizations don't get what they want because they don't measure what they really want!
If your measurements are out-of-whack, everything else will be as well. This is a real problem, because no organization can be any better than…...

Findings The Identification and Assessment of 4 Factors Which Can Affect an Organisation’s Approach to Attracting Talent The main factor here is Supply and Demand: * Is there a vacancy? The first point to consider is whether or not there is actually a vacancy to fill. If a current member of staff has left or is intending to leave, could the vacancy be filled by splitting the job between other current employees? This could be resolved by carrying out a job analysis gaining information from the leaver (through an exit interview) and the line manager. The opportunity could arise at this point to consider restructuring the company by promoting someone to take on more responsibility – thereby affording that employee......

Resourcing Strategy

...People Resourcing Standards | Practitioner-level Standards People Resourcing Purpose The pace of change affecting organisations shows no sign of slowing down and it has a strong impact on managerial expectations about: • employee behaviour and attitudes • corporate pressures on managerial performance • the employability potential and aspirations of labour market entrants • the criteria for success applied to those engaged in employee resourcing activities. Therefore, this elective is designed to recognise the following key points: • For any organisation to achieve its people resourcing outcomes, the people resourcing professional must be aware of the organisation’s strategic direction and be able to demonstrate that the resourcing policies, systems and procedures contribute to achieving the corporate strategic goals. • There is no guarantee that today’s organisations will exist in the indefinite future, either at all or in their present form. So this elective seeks to address the competencies that resourcing professionals are likely to need ‘everywhere and tomorrow’, rather than just ‘here and now’. • Administering employment systems in line with the law and recognised standards of fairness and good practice is important, but it doesn’t make the difference between success and failure in the market place. People resourcing professionals add real value through their contribution to the recruitment, selection, deployment, development and retention of people who themselves......

Compensation and Other Employee Retention Strategies

...COMPENSATION AND OTHER EMPLOYEE RETENTION STATEGIES Abstract There are three human elements that are important to any organizations success - good leadership at the top, effective management at all levels, and personnel who possess the knowledge and skills to get the job done. Retaining effective employees is a challenge, and replacing employees who leave an organization is extremely expensive. Roger E. Herman’s book Keeping Good People – Strategies for Solving the Dilemma of the Decade discusses five strategies that an organization can implement, and which will aid in retaining top talent. This paper discusses those five strategies. Compensation strategies are those which ensure top talent can be recruited, and retained due to competitive compensation from an organization. Environmental strategies involve efforts that address 1) ethics and values, 2) organizational policies that interpret values and translate them into action, and 3) the physical environment that a company’s employees occupy. Relationship strategies are the actions of how an organization treats its people, as well as how they treat each other. Support strategies are those that equip employees with the resources that they require to complete the job. People growing strategies are actions that organizations can practice that contribute to the professional and personal development of their employees. For most organizations to be successful there are three human elements which are......

...HUMAN RESOURCES STRATEGIES – RESOURCING STRATEGY Marinaş Cristian Puia Ramona Ştefania Academia de Studii Economice Bucureşti, PiaŃa Romană nr.6, Sector 1, Bucureşti, +4021 319 19 00, Ramona.puia@man.ase.ro In this article the authors make an abstract of the main human resources strategies, presenting them in relation with the global strategy of the organisation. The accent falls on resourcing strategy, one of the main sources of competitive advantage. Resourcing strategy is not just about recruitment and selection. It is concerned with any means available to meet the needs of the firm for certain skills and behaviours. A strategy to enlarge the skill base may start with recruitment and selection but would also extend into learning and development programmes to enhance skills and methods of rewarding people for the aquisition of extra skills. These statements want to emphasise the strong links between different human resource strategies. Key words: strategic management, human resources, resoucing strategy, skills. The last years’ research proved that the main priority of organisation strategy and strategic management is to secure a long-term future of the company. It is certain that such a purpose you can not achieve by practicing a bad human resource management and not take into consideration the strategic role of human resources. The human factors are critical when implementing a different organisational strategy, as people are usually change resistant. The performance......
