The Journal Record profile of People Profits 


"I know of only 2 people in HR with degrees
in Finance - I am one of them."

Clark Ingram, Founder and President of People Profits 

HR people are not numbers/systems people.
They feel no obligation to meet or even understand their organizations ROI.


People Profits unique view of HR is the result of a financial/systems mindset:   

  1. HR must be held accountable for their hard $$ ROI.  
  2. Investments must be tracked and evaluated as they are in other functions. 
  3. Hard $$ cost savings must be found consistently. 
  4. Hard $$ revenue increases should be found consistently. 
  5. HR must either cultivate or buy financial expertise. 

What areas does People Profits find hard $$s - a few examples.

  1. The use and cost of recruiters and temporary agencies
    • Develop a recruiting strategy and a custom recruiting system. 
    • This cost is a fraction of the cost of recruiters.
    • Your control over selection will rise dramatically.  
  2. Employee turnover
    • Determine the root causes of your turnover.
    • Develop a strategy and tactics to reduce turnover. 
  3. Review and adjust Employee Benefit plans.
    • Find costs that do not benefit the company/employees. 
    • Plans costs and benefits must relate appropriately. 
    • Plans must be relevant to your employees. 
  4. Review employee development costs.
    • Many development programs are technologically outdated. 
    • Development programs are under systematized - therefore costly.

Case study: Each time that I came on board as the new Chief HR Officer I was able to justify my salary and the expense budget of HR many times over with Hard $$ savings or revenue increases.  

So, if HR does not understand that numbers are important:
