HR analytics

Imagine that a robot is assigned to you to help you at work everyday. Wouldn’t that be great? Well, although that may not be possible immediately, there is something that comes close to it. It’s analytics. Today’s analytical tools can be likened to a robot or a loyal friend giving you the best advice — just in time.

Synergy between analytics and HR 
With a plethora of tasks to do, HR managers can be more productive with analytics. Whether it is everyday tasks or more strategic ones, analytics helps HR specialists process information in the best way and simplify decision-making. The whole nine yards of HR functions — talent acquisition, employee retention, training and development, performance review, employee benefits disbursal and rewards and recognition — can be completed with precision using analytics.

Better decision-making
The ability to focus on critical tasks may be limited with a huge volume of work, increasing complexity and stringent timelines. But don’t worry because analytics is at your rescue. Analytics offers valuable insight to make informed decisions without spending much time, simplify processes and thereby improve efficiency.

Tangible benefits
With analytics, HR managers can analyse information, set benchmarks for employees, and measure employee performance. Reviewing the impact of training programmes on job performance and revising goals are also made convenient. Analytics can help in many other ways too. For instance, HR professionals can analyse employee food consumption habits and suggest appropriate health programmes that help employees in the long run.

Employee benefits programmes
Be it measuring a digital reimbursement programme or employee meal e vouchers benefit or checking whether the fuel vouchers are being optimally used by employees, HR professionals can integrate analytics to measure the effectiveness of any employee benefit programme.

Forecasting
Better planning of resource requirements and corresponding skill sets can be made effortlessly with analytics. With qualitative assessments and business goals, future requirements can be more easily determined.

Befriending analytics is almost essential for HR professionals today, and we look forward to hearing from you on this.
