Alexandria, Va. – The public comment periods for two new HR standards—performance management and
investor metrics—are open now until May 24.
The performance management standard will provide employers with a uniform way to analyze and discuss their employees’ job performances. The investor metric standard will help the investment industry determine the value of human capital and report on it easily.
“An interesting coincidence about these two standards reaching public review simultaneously is that they both represent two approaches for assessing performance in the workplace,”
said Lee Webster, SHRM’s director of HR standards.
American National Standards Institute (ANSI) designated the
Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) as the exclusive United States developer of human resources standards in February 2009. In 2011, SHRM partnered with ASIS to release a
workplace violence prevention and intervention standard. The
cost-per-hire standard, released in 2012, is the first American national HR standard. Standards on employee and labor relations, staffing and workforce planning, compliance and regulatory, and metrics and measures are in the process of being developed.
All SHRM-sponsored HR standards are developed with the involvement of those who are affected by the standard, such as HR practitioners, line managers, academics, and consultants from public and private organizations across the country.
Individuals and organizations can view the proposed performance management draft standard and submit comments by visiting the SHRM balloting website at
