As any business owner and management staff member knows, the success of a company is heavily reliant on the people under its employ, how satisfied they are with their work circumstances and how driven they are to perform at their best. HR has always been the fundamental go-between that maintains open channels of communication between the company and its directives and each staff member, ensuring a harmonious and productive work environment. Thanks to technological advances, we now have data insights to aid us in better understanding the more intricate aspects of operations and the tools to tactically improve overall efficiency. This is the advantage of HR Analytics.
What Is HR Analytics?
HR Analytics interprets a vast amount of information through data mining by analysing statistics, patterns and personnel data to aid the human resource department in making more informed decisions about recruitment, retention tactics and employee training strategies. Properly utilised data from HR analytics can vastly improve business performance as a whole.
How Does It Help Senior Staff Prove Their Value?
With the information at hand through HR analytics, managers and senior staff members can make informed and tactical decisions about how they operate their teams. The data provided is based on actual patterns in the company and entirely relevant to existing operations, allowing senior staff to proactively and continuously improve, measure and adapt their strategies while generating real-time data results for their managers to analyse and track. An invaluable benefit of HR analytics is that it takes the guess-work out of operational strategy, delivering clear data about which areas need improvement, what has worked in the past and what has not. This offers senior staff the empowerment to transition from merely acting as managing entities to becoming strategic and tactical contributors to the company, bolstering their overall value as employees.
Additional Benefits Of HR Analytics
Among the vast range of information provided by HR analytics, a company will gain insight into aspects such as staff turnover rates, average income per employee, efficiency of training programmes and how to optimise training efforts, employee behavioural patterns relating to frequency of sick leave and which months in a year show spikes in employee absence, identifying top performing employees and analysing efficiency of company culture through employee engagement.
