But, continuing to engage in human capital practices that reflect outdated knowledge and beliefs, leads to dysfunctional outcomes that can be very costly. Enter the age of People Analytics.

People analytics is vastly different from the “human resources” practices prevalent twenty years ago. People analytics allows you to incorporates a data-driven approach to managing people at work. Leverage data and sophisticated analysis to solve people-related issues, such as recruiting, performance evaluation, leadership, hiring and promotion, job and team design, and compensation. Utilize the date to improve your organization’s ability to achieve strategic goals, rather than simply serving as administrative support functions. And remember, application of People Analytics is not just for HR professionals; as a leader, you need to be well versed in strategies that bring in and retain the best talent.
