We all keep metrics - from KPIs at work to tracking 3-D information about workouts at the gym and the quality of our sleep at home in our beds. We love those little graphable sound-bites of information. It's easy to get caught up in the "what -can-we-measure-next" mentality, falling in to a pattern of measuring for measurement's sake and losing the reasons for creating the metrics in the first place.

Some HR and Compensation Managers keep 40 or more metrics, and nearly all of them are uninteresting to the C-Suite.

In this installment, we discuss the three levels of HR metrics, why your company executives really only care about one type, and how to present those metrics to management to they understand how you are helping to move the organization forward.
