C-level and HR leaders must embrace evidence-based HR or risk losing ground: KPMG International report

C-level and HR leaders must embrace evidence-based HR or risk losing ground: KPMG International report | HR Analytics and Big Data @ Work | Scoop.it
Report reveals 82 percent of organizations expect to begin or increase use of analytics in the people function in the next three years, modest increase over 2012 but doubts remain about HR’s strategic value.
Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s insight:

New survey on data-driven HR by KPMG and The Economist Intelligence called 'Evidence-Based HR: The Bridge Between your People and Delivering Business Strategy'. Main outcome of the survey is that "Evidence-based HR (is) still at embryonic, pioneering stage".


Other main outcomes are:

 

- 55 percent remains skeptical about the potential of Big Data and advanced analytics to make a real difference to the HR function


- 82 percent expects their organization to either begin or increase the use of Big Data and advanced analytics over the next three years


- Corporate culture is cited as the single largest obstacle to the use of evidence in people management (32 percent), followed by lack of skills and resources (30 percent) and the quality of the data (29 percent)

Why HR must be based on evidence, science and international standards - 5/13/2013 - Personnel Today

Why HR must be based on evidence, science and international standards - 5/13/2013 - Personnel Today | HR Analytics and Big Data @ Work | Scoop.it

"What evidence do you have to support basic HR practices such as job evaluation and grading? Do you have any evidence that this is beneficial to your organisation?"

Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s insight:

Excellent work by Paul Kearns and Professor Jeffrey Pfeffer on the need of a more evidence-based and scientific approach "to bring the HR profession into the modern age". Pfeffer is very critical on the way HR operates today, viewing it as "mindless imitation of what others are doing".

 

Bottom-line: "The scientific method is not magic, but the big breakthrough in management will come when people management decisions are made more scientifically rather than through ill-considered, off-the-shelf HR and training practices that have been copied from everyone else."

CIPD - You say tomato, I say tomahto

CIPD - You say tomato, I say tomahto | HR Analytics and Big Data @ Work | Scoop.it

"The term Human Capital Management (HCM) arouses strong feelings, amongst HR professionals at least! In one corner it represents an attempt to categorise people as mere widgets in a machine in order to understand how to minimise their costs. In the other corner (and I have to hold my hand up here) HCM is a means of trying to understand the value of the contribution that people make to organisational performance."

Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s insight:

A critical review by CIPD on Human Capital management and measurement:

 

"While some people argue that there is little difference between the concept of 'human capital' and that of 'human resources', the key distinction is that the focus of human capital is on the value of employees, and how this may be measured, rather than on the HR function itself."

The Future of HR: It’s All About Making It a True Decision Science

The Future of HR: It’s All About Making It a True Decision Science | HR Analytics and Big Data @ Work | Scoop.it

"We are headed into HR’s future, and not its past. May old-style HR rest in peace."

Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s insight:

Nice, and seemly overlooked, TLNT post on Evidence-based HR from last year. The blogger recalls the shift from taking Spanish language class to Chinese language class as it will be the future global language.

 

HR also must become future-proof and has to evolve to its "role as a true decision science" (referring to John Boudreau's book Beyond HR). Therefore "HR needs to understand the finance and marketing mindset." But, the biggest obstacle for HR to change is HR itself, warns the author.
