HR Analytics



   HR Analytics is the use of people-data in analytical processes to drive organisational success by evaluating and designing better systems and solving business problems. Critically, it enables evidence-based decisions to be made using data collected and synthesized from a variety of sources both within and outside the organisation.  HR analytics uses people-data, collected by HR systems and business information systems within the context of the operating environment. At its core, HR analytics enables HR professionals and the organisation to gain insights into the performance of the workforce so that the investment in the ‘Human Capital’ brings improved performance, higher productivity and guarantees the organisation is ahead of the competition.   

HR analytics enables HR and the major stakeholders to measure and report on workforce performance, well-being, productivity, innovation and alignment. Additionally, analytics allows HR teams to demonstrate the impact that HR policies and processes have on workforce and organisational performance and used to demonstrate ROI and SROI investment for HR activity. Line managers are increasingly interested in how to manage their teams more effectively; HR concepts and analytics demonstrate how to evaluate and improve people and business performance.
