HR Data Mining & Analysis

One of the key benefits of HR Analytics is the ability to glean objective insights from data, as opposed to opinions, suspicions and guesses; allowing organizations to identify and respond to real issues and not “imaginary” ones.  This requires quantitative skills to mine the data for objective and pivotal insights; much of it grounded in statistics which may not be a common competency in many HR teams or organizations.

“If we have data, let’s look at data. If all we have are opinions, let’s go with mine.” – Jim Barksdale, Former CEO of Netscape
