So many lists of the Top 10 risks for 2017 floating around and we are already in March! Everyone seems to do the same study and get different results!

HR metrics are often overlooked or underrated in many organizations. This is a mistake, because HR metrics are very important in assessing the efficiency of the HR policies, programs and endeavors. At the heart of the idea of HR metrics is that whatever is taken up for assessment or implementation has to be measurable. As in any other area of management, HR too has to go by the idiom that what cannot be measured cannot be managed.

An online reputation disaster is the last thing a business needs. While the power of the Net is virtually unlimited in giving a business the kind of coverage and visibility it could only have imagined earlier; one bad review in a popular social media site can destroy at one stroke the reputation a business has carefully and diligently built over a long period of time.
