A group interactive exercise in exploring:
- The value of HR analytics to the business
- Problem solving and risk assessment not just data reporting
- The HR analytics process
Small group discussion (your choice of topics)
For each topic, the group will discuss:
- How do you frame the hypothesis to be tested?
- What data would you need?
- How would you present your results in a compelling way?
Option 1: Performance and productivity
- How can you use analytics to identify performance shortfalls or opportunities?
Option 2: Organisational health
- Using a variety of indicators (eg absence, wastage, employee engagement, safety) to point to risks to organisational success
Option 3: Innovation
- How would you assess the level of organisational innovation and the degree of employee contribution and opportunities for improvement?
Option 4: Leadership and Culture
- How do you determine the most effective leadership style to deliver business results, and how do you test whether your current leaders meet these characteristics?
Option 5: Supply-side difficulties
- If you are struggling to resource your business, can you identify - and take steps to rectify - the causes of your problem (eg. supply shortage, high wastage, failure to attract, etc)?
Discuss the conclusions and common threads between the groups.
