The perfect match, HR analytics and strategy

The perfect match, HR analytics and strategy | HR Transformation | Scoop.it

A good article by Patrick Coolen, from ABN AMRO Bank, who stresses the importance of  finding the relevant strategic business question.

Andrew Spences insight:

The article covers the evolution of HR analytics, from tools and techniques to capabilities and leadership.

Also, an interesting overview of the analytics product offering at the bank.

Patrick also makes the pragmatic point, "if you can answer a business question by creating a simple but effective pivot table and corresponding graph, by all means, please do."

Using People Analytics to drive business performance: quick-service restaurant chain

Using People Analytics to drive business performance: quick-service restaurant chain | HR Transformation | Scoop.it

"A nice case-study from McKinsey - a quick-service restaurant chain with thousands of outlets around the world is using data to drive a successful turnaround, increase customer satisfaction, and grow revenues."

Andrew Spences insight:

I enjoyed reading this case-study as it sums up some key themes in how to be successful with people analytics.

 

Interesting that the data collected was well beyond what is measured in our HR systems, including actual employee behaviour.

 

Also, this was a pilot which had encouraging results with customer satisfaction scores up more than 100%.

 

There were four insights that you can read about :-

  • Personality counts
  • Careers are key
  • Management is a contact sport
  • Shifts differ

 

And a summary that should be printed on every CHRO's job description :- 

 

"executives who can complement experience-based wisdom with analytically driven insight stand a much better chance of linking their talent efforts to business value"

HR Data Alone Won't Make You Strategic

HR Data Alone Won't Make You Strategic | HR Transformation | Scoop.it

Given the prospect of free, in-context analytics that are immediately available, it’s not hard to understand their allure for HR. Unfortunately, as with many promises that are appealing on the surface, there’s a catch, and it’s a big one....

Andrew Spences insight:

HR Data Alone Won't Make You Strategic -> of course it won't.

 

And often the data being generated by HR systems will not even help you solve business problems such as attrition, absence and diversity.

 

So after spending a fortune on moving HR to the Cloud, organisations are often disappointed with the Analytics capability.

 

A top tip is to work out which data sets will be useful prior to implementing a new HR System.  Answering problems such as retention, often needs broad data sets including social media behaviour, networking patterns, personality, employee sentiment, sales etc.
