Eight successful human resources executives from ForbesHuman Resources Council discuss the different ways human resources teams can benefit from using workforce analytics.
1. Uncover, Then Improve Engagement Drivers
Every employer strives to improve employee engagement. Employees are driven by factors that add to, or subtract from, their engagement with their work. The challenge is knowing which drivers matter and how best to impact them. Leveraging big data, not just annual benchmark surveys but also critical quarterly pulse surveys, can provide the clarity needed to know which engagement drivers to focus on. - Todd Richardson, Emplify
2. Predict Future Success
I’ve always been a big fan of leveraging big data to increase the quality of my hires, but technology will never replace the human element of HR. We use both a cognitive ability test and a personality test to add quantitative data to the interview process. Tracking metrics that are common to our most successful hires helps me to make better decisions over time and lowers our risk! - Brett Comeaux, LG Fairmont
