Re-imagining People Analytics to Make Sense of the New World of Work

Re-imagining People Analytics to Make Sense of the New World of Work

The number one challenge organisations are facing today is how to incorporate new methods and ways of working presented by the future of work, whilst remaining profitable, competitive and sustainable.

What does this mean for HR and People Analytics?

People Analytics has a fantastic opportunity to make a fundamental impact in how HR can drive decisions and contribute real business value. The days of HR and talent centric exercises in insight exploration are being consigned to a new wave of maturity in this market. This is defined by the convergence of digital capability, enterprise datasets, and redefined models of business performance.

Working out the impacts, mitigations and control mechanisms needed to thrive in the industrial revolution 4.0 is fast becoming the preoccupation of strategic HR professionals, and is being delivered in partnership with their People Analytics teams.

Despite this, being ready to embrace this new dimension of people analytics is presenting several challenges.
