You may be sitting at home right now, asking yourself this very question! I wonder what my CEO prefers I do in my role. It’s a valid question, and one I find that great HR leaders already know the answer to, because they ask the question, often!

Reports are not data analytics. Reports are snapshots of data gathered into informational summaries. A good example of a report is a turnover report. Seeing turnover rates across locations, departments, etc., brings to our attention overall trends and may point to an issue in need of closer attention.

Retention and data. It’s a very linear relationship. The data is asked for, usually annually, by leadership so they can plan accordingly for gaps, re-training and scaling considerations.

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.
