HR Expo Editorials

20 May - Editorial One

As we step into the future of business, the role of Human Resources becomes increasingly pivotal. We're excited to share more information in the editorials leading to the HR Expo. Stay tuned!

A successful business has two financial components: cost and income. The aim of a business is to be sustainable, profitable, and valuable. To meet these goals, a business's income must be as high as possible, and the cost of running the business must be as low as possible. Imagine the HR team in the business where you work is called for a meeting with the business owner(s), and they ask the following questions. What will your answers be?

  1. What percentage of the total cost to run the business is allocated to people?

  2. What is the productivity index of the workforce?

  3. What is the return on employee costs for the business as a percentage of total cost?

  4. What is your plan to increase the business's production capacity by 25%

  5. without increasing headcount and related employment costs?

These are very important questions. If you work in HR, can you confidently answer them? If you are a business owner or the CEO of a company, would you like to know the answers to these questions?
