Jan 19, 2018 1:32:19 PM

In 2017, SAP SuccessFactors published a White Paper entitled “100 Critical Human Capital Questions” designed to assist HR leaders and corporate executives to intuitively recognize the importance of human capital to the growth and success of their enterprises.

This paper included a series of questions designed to help organizations understand these metrics, and to make those decisions.  Sample questions specific to Workforce Demographics and Diversity include:

  1. What percentage of your workforce will retire in the next year or in the next five years?
  2. What is the average age in your organization? In the last five years, has it increased, decreased, or remained the same?
  3. What is the average tenure of people in your organization? In the last five years, has it increased, decreased, or remained the same?
  4. What is your ratio of managerial to non-managerial staff? In the last five years, has it increased, decreased, or remained the same?
