100 Financial Figures

Investors or lenders examine the company’s development by means of key indicators such as EBIT, working capital or cash flow in order to make investment decisions in the shortest possible time. But what is behind these figures? What is their meaning? And why are they suitable for company analysis?

The contents of this manual help you to strengthen your know-how about financial figures and to prepare yourself optimally for dialogue with lending banks or investors.

Critical assessment of each financial code

In addition to defining each key figure, the calculation is shown using a numerical example, as well as the corresponding areas of application. On the basis of the comparison of the essential advantages and disadvantages, each criterion is subjected to a critical assessment. Please note that there may well be international differences in the calculation of key figures.

Overlapping analysis for meaningful results

It is important when dealing with key figures that they are never isolated, but always in the course of time, in relation to peer group companies or connected to the industry-specific circumstances. Finally, the overarching analysis of several indicators is the key to transferring key figures into a meaningful result. This reference book provides valuable support.

100 Workforce Metrics– Optimizing organizational efficiency

The “100 Workforce Metrics” manual is intended to provide HR managers with specific information in order to optimize the performance of the organization by means of suitable key figures. Not only the determined key figure alone, but especially its development over time, allows for conclusive findings and allows targeted measures to be developed further.

Employees make the difference. This is confirmed by various Studies and it is a highly cited statement from companies on their employees. Nevertheless, as the practice shows, the companies and the relevant Human Resources (HR) departments know relatively little about the so-called “human capital”.

Using workforce metrics promotes transparency

From the results the priorities for the human capital for the near and medium term future can be determined. Belly feelings are deposited with facts, investments or reductions can be credibly represented and targeted progress in the impact of the company can be achieved and measured.

The use of workforce metrics also promotes the transparency of the company and helps employees, investors and other stakeholders to improve their assessment and analysis. As a result, the company becomes more trustworthy in terms of its human capital and is accepted as a genuine interlocutor. The book is therefore an ideal companion for HR managers, HR directors, HR consultants and even for interested students.

Making informed decisions based on key figures

If your company is only beginning to check the performance of human resources, do not measure too much at first. Ten to fifteen key indicators help you and your company get the first important insights and thus make targeted and informed decisions regarding your most important resource – your employees.
