What does best-in-class people analytics look like?


At a time of skill shortages and competitive employment environments, integrating people strategy with business strategy is more essential than ever before. With more data available, management teams are looking to HR for predictive analytics to better understand and plan for their most critical asset: their people.


Many HR departments have their people data housed in various systems, ranging from sophisticated programs to spreadsheets. Yet the majority still have a difficult time getting an accurate headcount, let alone developing insights from analytics.


Best-in-class analytics requires the ability to combine systems and data to develop the core insights needed to drive strategic business outcomes in the following five areas:


Recruitment

Turnover

Diversity

Talent, and

Performance.


Effective predictive HR analytics require:

1. good data, and

2. good big-picture questions.


Without proper data HR will struggle to support the bigger-picture business context. Yet at the same time HR is responsible for answering the big-picture questions such as whether an organisation is getting the best talent in the market, how employer brand is impacting recruitment and diversity, and how skills shortages are impacting performance.


The first step to addressing the 'good data' challenge is to use a solution that can clean up and combine the people data the organisation has collected across its various systems. With this in place, the next step is to visualise this data. The final step is to identify the 'good big-picture' questions that move the business forward and mapping the right data to answer those questions.
