Human Resources Business Analytics for Strategic Decision Making July 31, 2018

Human Resources is stepping into the spotlight with HR analytics. In years past, one of HR’s primary goals was to collect and keep track of employees’ personal and professional information, such as payroll, health benefits and performance reviews. In order to play a more active role in the organization, HR needs to understand how to analyze data and present findings to senior management.

In this course participants will learn more about how analytical thinking and methodology can make HR play a more active and involved role in the organizations’ planning and objectives. Such an approach allows HR to interpret data, recognize trends or issues, and take proactive steps with different departments to keep the organization running smoothly and profitably. HR analytics differs from HR metrics by allowing HR managers to design their own analytics to achieve various outcomes such as gauging employee engagement and finding out whether or not workers have the skills to reach company goals.

The course is targeted at middle and senior HR managers, who need to deliver relevant info to other senior managers in the organization. Participants must have a keen interest in enhancing their HR messaging and in understanding the process and value of analytics in HR.

  • Understand the importance of analytics to support decision-making
  • Learn about the process of stating goals, conduct proper data collection, analysis and presenting findings in a way that is useful information to senior management
