People Analytics & Workforce Planning

Technology is changing at an ever increasing pace. More advanced computing power and capabilities means businesses, especially HR and Finance departments, are being deluged with data to process, record and interpret.

For many HR and Finance teams, more data means more time spent on data input and upkeep, leaving little time or effort for data analysis and insight.

People Analytics matters even more today than it did one, two and even five years ago.

75% of HR departments are merely scratching the surface of People Analytics

McKinsey Study 2019

But why and how can the HR community change this?

In a recent study conducted by LinkedIn they identified that North American companies are ahead of their Global and European counterparts in adopting HR Analytics practices and having a dedicated HR resource responsible for HR Analytics.

However, this only represents 22% of North American companies with an HR Function, of which only 11% have adopted the role of HR Analysts itself.

New Skills for HR to learn… or not?

Historically Human Resources teams have always been very good at interpreting and communicating corporate legalities, people skills and implementing people strategies.

Software database knowledge, data analysis skills and technical logical thinking have always been much lower down, if not at the bottom, of the skills requirements for a HR professional.

This is all about to change in the new world of HR data analysis, with new analytical skills, technical knowledge and software applications experience being required for the new role of HR Analytical Specialist. However, many studies have already identified that these key skills and IT knowledge are in short supply.

The new HR People Data Specialist needs to be a combination of IT specialist, HR Business Partner and Business Analyst, skilled in combining IT and HR – not someone historically found in either departmental functions.

This is where we can help as we have all these skills and people.

However, the people analytics of the future will likely pull in behavioural data to help uncover information that organisations have not yet been able to detect, like what drives future employee actions.
