Take a position on whether you agree or disagree with the following statement: “Most financial analysts use revenue per employee as a gauge on how successful the workforce is. Although an important measure, this metric does not tell the story.” Make sure you justify your position. Suggest the type of information or standardized measurements management could use to prove its workforce creates more value than its competitors. Provide specific examples to support your response. Analyze the opportunities and threats in the external environment that could have an impact on HR within the next three (3) years. Recommend two (2) strategies that will take advantage of the opportunities and mitigate the threats. Then select one that will provide the most value and competitive edge to your organization’s HR strategies and/or programs. Be sure to justify your selection.
