Beyond Â´revenue per headÂ´?: human capital metrics, firm performance and the teaching of HRM in..
The teaching of HRM has long faced reluctance among business school learners. In spite of the growing importance of people issues in business contexts, the lack of adequate measures and links between HRM and the finance arena largely prevents the subject from gaining salience in managersÂ´ mindsets. The purpose of this study was to run a comparative analysis of the relationship between quantitative indicators of HRM practices and three different financial indicators: revenue per employee, HC ROI and EBITDA. To that purpose, we have used a database containing actual measures of HRM practices and outcomes for a sample of 144 companies.
