HR Metrics Survey Begins Aug. 2


Salarity — a provider of the Allied for Health Surveys, a California statewide data resource to help hospitals make smarter decisions — will launch its biennial HR Metrics Survey on Aug. 2. The response period runs through Sept. 10. 

The HR Metrics Survey captures data on key human resources metrics from hospitals throughout California to assist HR leaders in making strategic decisions. The survey focuses on risk management (workers’ compensation), acquisition and recruiting, retention and turnover, and compensation and benefits.

Other key features include:

  • Information on leaves of absence and shared services
  • Data displayed in averages and percentiles
  • Executive summary that presents emerging industry trends
  • Ability for survey participants to order an Individual Facility Report comparing their hospital to all participating hospitals in aggregate

These quantitative measures provide a benchmark that empowers leaders to understand where they stand compared to peers. Better data foster increased credibility, as metrics are a tangible way of demonstrating the value of HR.
