Let's take a look at the ROI calculation - this is the last reason why HR professionals are interested in estimating the cost of human resources.
The ROI formula is easy to find on the Internet.
Cost is the key element in this formula. ROI equals the net benefit divided by the total cost of human resources. The upper part of the ROI formula is called Net Benefit. Net benefit is the total benefit minus the total cost. The net benefit is divided by the total cost.
Many different examples can be given. Often, the HR department analyzes the team and identifies the pros and cons. Accordingly, they try to correct the cons based on the collected data.
For example, poor lighting, insufficient ventilation in the room or low activity of employees leads to diseases.
To combat low activity, for example, competitions are introduced, either team or individual, with a physical activity counter, which leads to "healthy" competition. If you can calculate the costs and evaluate the benefits of such an intervention, you can calculate the ROI.
Human Resource Cost - Measuring the cost of personnel and estimating the benefit of an HR interventions.
Calculating ROI is comlex and tricky to perform. Indeed, the emphasis placed on this calculation is subject to much criticism.
Basic steps you can take by yourself:
1. Ask the author to remove the negative review. If you know the author or found the author's contact information, you can always get in touch, listen and negotiate. Solve the issue with an apology or in any other way. Then the author of the review can change it to a positive one or even delete it.
3. Take legal action against the author of the review. If any of the reviews cross the line and turn into slander, it is best to consult a lawyer. But remember, you can’t sue the platform.

We hope you truly understand the risk and the hardness of negotiations with the author. Apart from the cost of finding a connection with them. Also, flagging bad reviews won’t directly edit them, but they may return it to the reviewer for editing or confirmation. You cannot sue the review platform for a bad or even fake review because they are protected by Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. Instead, to sue the reviewer and/or poster themselves is an overpriced and unpredictable ending option. Let's move on to the tool that works.
