HR Analytics Series – Mining HR Data For Insights

Virtual session via Zoom

4 April 2022

9.00am to 5.00pm (GMT +8)

Course Introduction

Mining HR Data For Insights

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 HR 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.

This workshop aims to provide a broad but practical overview of the entire analytics value chain, with a specific focus on gleaning objective insights from HR data. Attendees will get a practical introduction to statistics concepts and tools most relevant to HR. Attendees will also get the opportunity to get their hands “dirty” applying these concepts with data in realistic situations to glean and interpret objective insights, and finally effectively communicate their findings to decision makers. This is targeted at professionals and managers in analyst roles that require them to conduct data driven analysis to support people decisions in their organisation.

This is ONE of FIVE workshops in a comprehensive series on the topic of HR Analytics. Each workshop is modular in nature, addressing different aspects along the analytics value chain.
