Four steps to better People analytics

by Sage | Digital Transformation

Companies have a wealth of information about their customers at their fingertips – from the types of products they buy, to how they engage with the brand, to when and how frequently they will make a purchase.

What if you had the same level of insight and visibility about your employees? What if you knew where every high-potential employee could add most value? What about how your staff prefer to work? Or who is likely to become a flight risk? Imagine the impact on your company’s performance if you tapped into this and knew your employees as well as your customers.

The desire for data is stronger than ever given the amount of change and unpredictability in the world of work right now. The more that business leaders can infer about the future and how an organisation may be affected by changes in people trends, the quicker leaders can react, respond and prepare. This drives agility and enables a business to be more resilient.

HR analytics is the key to understanding your workforce and uncovering meaningful data that is forward-looking and can provide actionable insights for the organisation. But getting to this advanced stage of actionable insights takes time. Having accurate data stored in one central system, with the right skills and technology to interrogate and make key decisions based on that data, is a journey.

In this eBook, you’ll discover what the four stages of HR analytics maturity are, why each stage is important, and how to travel along the phases in your own HR analytics journey. This guide is for HR and People leaders, and business and finance leaders, who want to understand HR analytics maturity and why each stage is crucial to get right in order to drive business success.
