By Dave Ulrich, Brian Becker, Mark Huselid | March 1, 2001

Dave Ulrich and his colleagues introduce a measurement system showcasing how HR impacts business performance.

Three experts in Human Resources outline a powerful measurement system that highlights the indisputable role HR can play both as a prime source of sustainable competitive advantage and a key driver of value creation. Drawing from the authors' ongoing study of nearly 3,000 firms, this book describes a seven-step process for embedding HR systems within the firm's overall strategy--what the authors describe as an HR Scorecard--and measuring its activities in terms that line managers and CEOs will find compelling. Analyzing how each element of the HR system can be designed to enhance firm performance and maximize the overall quality of human capital, this important book heralds the emergence of HR as a strategic powerhouse in today's organizations.
