  1. 1. 1. In an interview can we predict whether the candidate, if selected, will stay with us for at least 18 months? to be expressed as a probability for each candidate; Action: select those with .7 or higher probability 2. Will the engagement level of my employees increase because of the salary revision being effected? to be expressed as a table showing percentage of increase versus percentage level of engagement Action: to determine an appropriate percentage of increase from a given range of possibilities 3. What are the chances that the particular employee will be successful in the new role to which she is being promoted? to be expressed as a probability against given conditions Action: to decide on what support will ensure that the candidate is successful after promotion 4. How effective will a given L & D program be in increasing productivity? to be shown as a graph of percentage of participants versus productivity increase in their area Action: To tweak the content or andragogy of a program in order to make it more effective 5.

  2. 2. • In an interview can we predict whether the candidate, if selected, will stay with us for at least 18 months? • to be expressed as a probability for each candidate • Action: select those with .7 or higher probability Decision Making Prediction Issue or Problem Statement
  3. 3. A HR Analytics Primer • The core of HR Analytics is the "metric" • Metrics can be understood as data that conveys meaning in a given context • Metric is to be distinguished from measures or numbers Example: – employee turnover is 13.5% p.a. – There is a 4 percent point rise in attrition rate on a year to year basis – Inappropriate Leadership styles of select managers resulted in higher attrition of 3% on a comparable basis Measure or Data Metric Analytic
  4. 4. A HR Analytics Primer • Checklist, Dashboard, HRIS – All of these are tools to collate and display information • Hypothesis • Variables: Dependent and Independent • Statistical Models – E.g. Regression, ANOVA
  5. 5. HR Analytics • Analytics is not so much about numbers, as it is to do with logic and reasoning • Analytics is different from Analysis, which is the equivalent of number crunching. Analytics uses analysis but then builds on it to understand the 'why' behind the figures and / or to predict decisions. Analytics is the methodology of logical analysis • Analytics requires the use of carefully constructed metrics • HR Analytics is data based; it uses past data to predict the future • It is not about the quantity of data churned; it is about the logic used to link metrics to results
