HCM Reporting

Author: ‘Yes, although it’s not the end of a chain but a link to the next cycle of strategy development, providing the information that all those concerned with an organization’s HCM activities need to make appropriate decisions.

It also helps organizations move away from the far too common situation in which they use their data warehousing and reporting capabilities to provide data to people, vaguely hoping that someone will find it useful.’
