HR analytics produces the information needed to support employees day-to-day. What’s often missing is a strategic or forward-looking focus. And more often than not, it works on ‘gut feel’ or unreliable data. Crucial to meaningful HR analytics is data integrity and automated aggregation from multiple sources, from finance and operations to sales and marketing.
HR analytics for more than HR
Accepted wisdom is that HR analytics is all about HR operations. It uses data from your Human Capital Management system to make decisions about onboarding processes, employee engagement, or managing attrition rates. Makes sense, no?
But what if HR was about work and skills forecasting, workforce modeling, and organizational design. In our view, it should be. Why? Because we believe the future of HR is inherently strategic, consultative, and cross-functional.
To begin that journey, HR analytics needs to go from an emphasis on backward-looking metrics to forward-looking, actionable insight that has business impact. It’s no surprise that only 15% of business leaders have changed a decision based on HR data, according to a recent Gartner study. OrgVue changes that.
HR analytics for business impact
HR analytics is much more powerful when workforce data is combined with finance and other business data to provide answers to questions that the business cares most about. Retrospective attrition reports are of little value compared to insight into the impact of leavers on business performance. That would surely grab the board’s attention.
