Between 30% and 70% of your company's costs are direct labor costs. Given that you're making such a significant investment in your human capital are you taking the right steps to increase the return you're getting on that investment?

So how do you get the highest possible ROI on your human capital? 

What is the secret formula for success?


Productivity Improvement + Performance Improvement = Profit Improvement

In order to address your profit problem it's helpful to first step back and view your organization as a whole with an HR audit, then drill down into the key processes that are responsible for the output of your human capital.

Consider these three Human Capital processes:

  1. The Acquisition process - identifying the individuals with the right combination of skills, knowledge, ability and FIT to become top performers in your organization.
  2. The Development process - the manner in which you on-board, train, performance manage, coach, mentor, etc. in order to drive engagement and the desired output.
  3. The Management process - whereby you direct the day-to-day output of your employees to improve their productivity and performance results that will positively impact your business.

Even small improvements across each phase of the processes will have a compounding effect or exponential impact on your company's bottom line.
