Software to Accompany Chapters 3–11
To enhance the accuracy of calculations for the exercises that appear at the end of each chapter, and to make them easier to use, we have developed web-based software to accompany material in Chapters 3 through 11 in this book. The software covers the following topics: employee absenteeism, turnover, health and welfare, attitudes and engagement, work-life issues, external employee sourcing, the economic value of job performance, payoffs from selection, and payoffs from training (HR development).
Developed with support from the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), you can access this software from the SHRM website (www.shrm.org/publications/books) anywhere in the world, regardless of whether you are or are not a member of SHRM. Of particular note to multi national enterprises, the calculations can be performed using any currency, and con versions from one currency to another are accomplished easily. You can save, print, or download your calculations, and carry forward all existing data to subsequent sessions. Our hope is that by reducing the effort necessary to perform the actual calculation of measures, readers will spend more time focusing on the logic, analytics, and processes necessary to improve strategic decisions about talent.
