Google is tackling the science of how to build excellent teams

Google is tackling the science of how to build excellent teams | HR Analytics and Big Data @ Work | Scoop.it
The next big people analytics project.
Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s insight:

We already read about Google's scientific approach to management (as part of Project Oxygen). Now, the company wants to study 'how do great teams work': "The way great teams function is much more poorly understood than how to lead people well."


So, more to expect from Google in the coming years!

How Google Became the #3 Most Valuable Firm by Using People Analytics to Reinvent HR - ERE.net | HR Analytics and Big Data @ Work | Scoop.it

Google has the only HR function on the planet that is managed based on “people analytics”

Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s insight:

Very extensive report article on the 'secret' HR power of Google: People Analytics. The article describes why you should be envious (and aware at the same time) of Google, in regard to the (analytical) way Google organizes and executes its HR. As the article states: "Google Is a Talent Competitor to Your Firm"

 

Of course, other firms can learn a lot from Google's People Analytics approach to HR. The author's Top 10 of Google's power:

 

- (data-driven) Leadership characteristics and the role of managers

- The PiLab

- A retention algorithm

- Predictive modeling

- An effective hiring algorithm
- Calculating the value of top performers
- Workplace design drives collaboration
- Increasing discovery and learning
- It doesn’t dictate; it convinces with data

Andrew Spence's curator insight, October 13, 2013 3:43 PM

There is far too much hype in HR around Big Data.

HR need Big Hypotheses, not Big Data.

Great to read how Google starts every People Operations project with a question to answer.   And, over the last half-dozen years, the analytics team has produced significant insights that have:

  • helped limit the number of interviews required (company analysis showed that more than four interviewers didn’t lead to higher quality hiring),
  • revealed the optimal organizational size and shape of various departments,
  • shown how to better manage maternity leave resulting in a fifty percent reduction in defections,
  • created on-boarding agenda for an employee’s first four days of work that boosted productivity by up to 15 percent
  • and produced an algorithm to review rejected applications (Google gets over two million applications every year) that has helped the company hire some talented engineers its screening process would have otherwise missed.
