Research Report: Strategic Workforce Analytics

About the research

Workforce analytics has become a hot topic in organisations over recent years, with significant claims of potential business benefits. And yet only a quarter (27%) of respondents to a recent CRF survey find that their organisation's workforce analytics capability allows them to identify opportunities to make decisions that lead to better business outcomes frequently or consistently. It is evident that while there is demand for HR Analytics in organisations, companies are struggling to implement workforce analytics programmes and drive results through HR Analytics.

This research report explores the possibilities offered by workforce analytics, and provides examples and practical recommendations around deploying the emerging tools and techniques to address the most pressing workforce-related issues that drive business performance. Topics include:

  • Workforce analytics - key enabler of strategy execution or management fad?
  • Building a methodology for analytics with strategic impact at its heart
  • What is the current state and application of workforce analytics?
  • Building the organisation capability for analytics
  • Conclusions and recommendation

The research report is available to CRF members only. To access the report, please log in with your username and password. If you are not a member of the CRF network, you can still access the executive summary of the report.
