Each indicator will be explained including what the term means, how it is used in business, what types of business it is most used in and what up or down trends mean for the business. Participants will be asked for examples of how each financial indicator impacts HR functions such as new hires, benefits, healthcare costs, etc. Additional examples, drawn from CFO’s and VPs of HR and Learning will be provided by the presenter.

Participants will also be asked for examples of how they can proactively and positively impact the numbers by anticipating business needs. Presenter will provide additional examples drawn from CFO interviews.
