About the course

Gain a deeper understanding of your workforce and improve the quality and credibility of HR organisational insight and decision-making, with this two day course.

Employee salaries and HR programmes frequently account for close to half of many organisations operating expenses. One reason for this high level of investment is the recognition that people are the ultimate source of innovation and competitive advantage. In order to leverage maximum employee value and potential, many leading organisations are turning to human capital analytics to gain a deeper understanding of their workforces, and improve the quality and credibility of HR decision-making.

This two-day programme run by leading HR analytics experts provides an in-depth introduction to HR analytics and enables you to develop the skills to initiate a human capital analytics journey by providing tools and methods for:

  • Linking HR and business strategies
  • Assessing organisational readiness for analytics initiatives
  • Building the business case for analytics
  • Demonstrating the credibility and value added by HR
  • Using analytical insights to improve talent management processes
  • Defining the roles, capabilities, and structures required to maximise analytics effectiveness.

No prior knowledge or understanding of HR analytics is required. And, with group sizes fo no more than 16, you'll be able to interact with like-minded colleagues from a range of organisations, and focus on developing your own knowledge, skills and understanding in this area. The small group size also allows you to focus on your business, and understand the steps you can take to embed analytics in your workplace. By the end of the course, you'll be in the position to initiate a human capital metrics journey that will help to improve the quality and credibility of your HR decision-making through HR data, metrics and analytics.
