People analytics

People analytics is finally coming of age after years in the shadow of its commercial, marketing, and finance peers. Often interchangeably referred to as people, workforce, or talent analytics – call it what you like – it’s all valuable insights into your most valued asset – your employees.

So, what is people analytics?

People analytics is the practice of extracting information from data on your employees to solve business problems. It uses both people data and business data to provide enriched insights into the workforce, how it operates, how much it costs, and how it changes over time.

Too often though, organizations spend an inordinate amount of time battling with data quality and struggling to conduct analytics using their HCM system, which provides little insight because it doesn’t have all the data sources needed. Consequently, the business produces analytics for HR, rather people analytics for the organization overall, which delivers strategic impact. OrgVue changes that.

Taking it to the next level

OrgVue quickly aggregates and cleanses data from multiple sources, freeing up time to analyze data and answer questions for the business. It can quickly produce workforce insights against any dimension, such as gender pay gap, headcount costs by team, function or business unit, or organizational analysis.

Taking it to the next level, it enables you to combine your people and other business data to scenario plan different operating models as the business strategy demands. This is building a dynamic capability that enables organizations to respond to change based on data.

Introducing OP&A

Managing constant disruption demands new skills within organizations to analyze and model change. This new way of working is the first step on a journey to a forward-looking discipline called Organizational Planning and Analysis (OP&A).

OP&A is the strategic capability of HR to anticipate market developments and prepare the organization for the future. It operates hand-in-hand with Financial Planning and Analysis to forecast, budget, and plan the workforce of tomorrow.
