The key to understanding the workforce
As the complexity of workforce challenges continues to rise, so will the demand for more quantitative approaches to address the increasingly difficult people-related questions central to organizational success. The power of workforce analytics lies in its ability to challenge conventional wisdom, influence behavior, enable HR and business leaders to make and execute smarter workforce decisions, and ultimately, impact business outcomes. To realize value from investments in workforce analytics, organizations need to understand: the relationship between their workforce strategies and their business challenges; the approaches at their disposal; and the capabilities required to translate raw HR data into defensible action.
