Understanding People Issues With Data
“Without data you’re just another person with an opinion” – W. Edwards Deming
There has been growing interest in analytics over the past decade; particularly how data can be leveraged to create value for organizations through analytics, by augmenting and improving the decision-making processes. To the point where many organizations have sought to build core competencies in analytics to fuel their growth. While HR came to the analytics game a little later, a growing number of HR leaders are recognizing the potential that their HR data could hold, and HR functions are seeing greater interest and adoption of analytics in recent times.
However, many HR professionals and functions continue to struggle to build the sustainable capabilities. It stems from various factors, depending on each organization’s maturity in the HR Analytics, which include:
- A lack of awareness of what analytics is…and isn’t; and/or
- A lack of the requisite quantitative and data skills; and/or
- A lack of the necessary data storytelling skills
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.
