HR analytics attempts to solve HR-related business problems by understanding and analysing data and applying analytical processes to an organisation's HR and business data. At its core, HR analytics enables HR practitioners and employers to gain insights into their workforce, HR policies and practices, with a focus on the human capital element of the workforce, and can ultimately inform more evidence-based decision making.
For many HR professionals, it can feel like they are being left behind in the HR analytics race. From where they stand their competitors, and colleagues across the profession are talking about predictive and prescriptive analytics, and are doing very sophisticated experiments with their people data. The truth is however that the majority are at square one, or have only recently started to invest in analytics. The value of people data has yet to be realised for most HR professionals.
This talk will focus on how HR professionals can use people data to inform business decisions. The session will cover case studies of organisations who have developed analytics capability and will share research tools which organisations can use to better understand the value of their workforce.
