About the course

Utilize data from past success to predict and realize future success.

Growing evidence shows that leveraging human capital improves firm performance (revenue, stock price, customer satisfaction, retention, and safety) and sustains competitive advantage. But, continuing to engage in human capital practices that reflect outdated knowledge and beliefs, leads to dysfunctional outcomes that can be very costly. Enter the age of People Analytics.

People analytics allows you to incorporate a data-driven approach to managing people at work. Leverage data and sophisticated analysis to solve people-related issues, such as recruiting, performance evaluation, leadership, hiring and promotion, job and team design, and compensation. Utilize the data to improve your organization’s ability to achieve strategic goals. Application of People Analytics better informs your decisions on hiring the right person for the right position, building the most effective teams possible, and avoiding costly turnover.
