I am a new member of this group and would be glad throw some light on the query posted by you regarding cost cutting in HR.

You are right to an extent when you say that in HR its little difficult to quantify the results.  Still, many targets in HR can also be quantified and ultimately cost cutting exercise can be carried out. E.g.

HR professionals can work on bringing down the 'Cost per hire', 'recruitment cycle time', 'training cost' etc.  If we consider Admin also part of HR, then, cost on transportation, canteen etc. can also be regulated.

Other than these, you can always go for minimum usage of paper by giving less prints, save electricity and water...


Thanks & Regards,
