I spent several years as an HRIS and Quality Manager. In this role, I was often asked to “pull numbers” on retention, turnover, benefits usage, 401k participation, and click activity on jobs in our ATS. HR departments have a tradition of collecting lots of HR data. However, this data often remains unused. As soon as your organization starts solving their people problems by using data, they are engaged in people analytics.
With the increased focus on measuring diversity, gender pay equity, skills gaps, labor utilization, retention rates, real-time feedback, and even organizational network analysis, we now understand that people analytics is a vital part of running a high performing company.
I am so excited to be attending the SHRM People Analytics Conference in Seattle January 14-15, 2020. This event offers educational opportunities to stay ahead of the curve and learn how data can help predict, diagnose and solve common HR challenges when it comes to workforce planning, employee engagement, performance management and recruitment and retention.
There are so many great sessions I am looking forward to attending, including a session with Sharlyn Lauby, SHRM-SCP, HR digital influencer, HR Bartender and Trish McFarlane, CEO and principal analyst, H3 HR Advisors Inc. who will be discussing How People Analytics Transforms the Workplace. They will be discussing the pros and cons of analytics, it’s effect on the HR function, and how to cut through the “noise” and leverage those elements for organizational benefit, and the impact of these changes on the worker and workplace.
