HR Analytics can be understood as the art and science of acquiring, arranging, and analysing data about employees and HR systems for strategic decision-making.  Whether HR analytics is used for predictive, prescriptive, or descriptive purposes, it can be applied to the functions of staffing, rewards, performance management, learning and development, engagement, and induction to enhance accountability, productivity, retention, and efficiency of employees in the organisation.

A data-driven culture makes employee efforts more focused and aligned sharply with organisational goals, thus improving overall efficiency.  Self-service analytics tools like Tableau make it possible for business managers to analyse and derive insights from data at their end.

In this programme, participants shall learn to understand the strategic relevance of data-driven HR decisions, visualise complex data to make it more coherent, and identify as well as address people management challenges.  The data visualisation and analysis techniques and tools taught in the programme would be relevant for managers to drive their desired business outcomes.

Programme Objectives

This programme is meant for working professionals who want to enhance their decision-making skills and become more data-driven in people management. A prior knowledge of the essentials of HR systems and processes would be useful. The programme would cover the basics of using Tableau software for data visualisation to help leverage the data to provide more strategic inputs.
