We have presented ROI in this lesson as a financial tool, one which someone in the accounting department is likely to employ in assessing the cost/benefit of a particular decision an organization considers.
In an essay of at least 500 words, imagine that you are going to approach the Chief Financial Officer of your organization to propose an HR initiative involving the development and implementation of a diversity training program. The CFO is known to be tough on spending, so you will need to figure a way to “sell” your program to him. Keeping in mind how a CFO (an accountant) thinks, you will have to speak his language to get it done. You may consider the example in the commentary as an approach that the CFO likes when it comes to Return on Investment (ROI) proposals.
