Future Performance Trend Indicators: A Current Value Approach to Human Resources Accounting. Report I. Internal Consistencies and Relationships to Performance By Site. Final Report.
Pecorella, Patricia A.; Bowers, David G.
Analyses preparatory to construction of a suitable file for generating a system of future performance trend indicators are described. Such a system falls into the category of a current value approach to human resources accounting. It requires that there be a substantial body of data which: (1) uses the work group or unit, not the individual, as the analysis unit; (2) contains standard measures of the human organization and dollar-convertible performance measures, both with high internal consistency; and (3) displays a high frequency of statistically significant relationships of human organization to performance measures. This report presents analyses whose function is to construct a data file with these characteristics. Internal consistency reliabilities of both human organization (survey) data and performance (total variable expenses and absenteeism rate) are shown to be high, and a pattern of human organization-to-performance coefficients results which is eminently usable. It constructs a base from which to take the next steps: multiple regression, time lag and magnitude estimation, and value attribution. (Author/MV)
