A proposed ANSI-SHRM standard for investor human resource metrics ("ANSI-SHRM 02001.201X Investor Metrics 1stPR DRAFT Standard v1 (040912).pdf") and comments on it are available in the "Metrics and Measures Taskforce (T02)" group at http://hrstandardsworkspace.shrm.org/apps/group_public/document.php?document_id=6504&wg_abbrev=mamt02.
ANSI is the American National Standards Institute, and SHRM is the Society for Human Resource Management. The proposed standard is one of the first of its kind.
One summary proposal concerning the standard was offered by William Fisher, who suggested that the group: "In future revisions of the standard, employ scaling and instrument calibration methods capable of defining invariant units and of then supporting invariant comparisons across different vendors' particular ways of approaching the constructs to be measured." The full comment was several paragraphs, and published references were provided as resources to be consulted.
Lee Webster, of the standards task force, responded to the proposal on October 5, saying "We appreciate this insight, and agree that more sophisticated measures will (hopefully) be possible in future revisions (as more data become available). Since regular review of standards is a required part of the ANSI process, there will be an opportunity to look at these ideas in depth in the future."
Standards are widely recognized for their value in simplifying communication and facilitating trade. New standards like that being developed by ANSI and SHRM will be increasingly of interest as intangible assets, such as abilities, health, motivations, and trustworthiness, become ever more central to economic productivity.
