Topics include: an introduction to evaluation, models of evaluation, different tools and techniques of evaluation, creating and implementing a HR scorecard, human capital risk management, and continuous performance improvement. Examples of applications are: the ROI of human capital, cost-benefit analysis, measurement of productivity and efficiency, staffing and learning, employee morale, talent retention, compensation and benefit values.
