HR is under increasing pressure to demonstrate business impact. It is critical to prioritise the things we can do to make a difference to business performance. Taking an analytical approach and using evidence, rather than relying on gut instinct alone, is a massive opportunity. The HR function has access to more data than ever before as the digital revolution continues to grow across many organisations. Using HR data can help build the credibility of the function and improve the quality of decision making, enable employees to be more engaged, and optimise the impact of business and people-based processes.
In the past, a lot of HR data has been put into charts and tables as part of corporate reporting processes but in the current era of analytics, organisations can turn their data into insights to predict when employees will leave, where to recruit the most suitable candidates from, and how to keep them more connected to the organisation once they become employees.
This is where the idea of data-driven HR comes from as this change of emphasis can enable the function to have a huge impact on an organisation’s ability to achieve its strategic aims. Data-driven HR focuses the function on adding value and driving
improved performance across the organisation on an ongoing basis. It’s about thinking like a proactive profit centre rather than focusing on being a reactive cost centre.
As part of this journey, analytics is becoming an increasingly important topic area within the HR community. Based on Dave Millner’s experience and CRF’s ongoing research into people analytics, this programme aims to take a commercial, HR-centric
view of data and analytics, assisting HR practitioners in how to leverage data to deliver tangible business impact. It is not about turning HR people into data scientists but about giving participants the confidence to work with data, not just to drive better reporting, but to provide more persuasive analysis that ensures HR is making a real impact on business performance.
