The webcast will cover the benefits of assessment, diagnostics, analysis and measurement in human capital management. There will be discussion of employee engagement, data driven decision making, implementation and ROI.
Human Capital Diagnostics Accurate Human Resources (HR) Diagnostic and Assessment tools are vital to organizations in order to prevent expensive mistakes in hiring, training, deploying and managing the performance of talent.
The Business Case for Human Capital Diagnostics and Assessments The ability to implement diagnostics is not the only challenge ─ analyzing and correctly interpreting the results, and then implementing appropriate HR measures can create a true strategic difference in the business.

What the Research Says… According to the Conference Board, only 19 percent of HR departments believe their IT systems are worthy of data gathering and of distributing briefings on people measures to all managers. According to USC professors, John W. Boudreau and Peter M. Ramstad in “Talentship and HR Measurement and Analysis,” the evolution of HR and HR measurement requires a sound “decision science” for human capital that truly informs and enhances decisions about human resources wherever they are made.

Poll My organization use data and metrics: Routinely, almost every major decision is data-based, backed by real diagnosis and hard evidence Decisions are data-driven in most parts of the organization but not in HR Few decisions appear to be data-driven or backed by diagnosis No decisions in the organization are made on the basis of data, diagnostics or hard evidence.
Employee Engagement Survey & Analysis Whatever the tool, employee engagement assessments and diagnostics must be properly implemented, assessed afterward, and most importantly, acted upon and then measured. Organizations should use the tools to classify employees into at least four major groupings: “Fully Engaged”, “Engaged”, “Somewhat Disengaged” and “Fully Disengaged”, are common labels. Web-based strategic engagement assessments, such as the SEGA diagnostic, can highlight areas of strength, challenges, and opportunities that guide the company toward strategic execution. This type of assessment also acts as a check up to determine where the company agrees and disagrees in the key areas that drive the business. “Strategic Engagement Gap Analysis”, Bob Heth and Carol Stevens, www.stratachieve.com
