Workforce analytics is the discovery, interpretation, and communication of meaningful patterns in workforce-related data to inform decision making and improve performance.
The human race’s quest for information is never-ending. Businesses and organizations are no exceptions. Business leaders continually seek out knowledge about their organizations to gain insights from all the data that exist. This is so they can make evidence-based decisions to improve their organization’s performance and gain competitive advantage in the marketplace.
The discipline called “analytics” exists to meet this need. Analytics concerning human resources, people and the workforce is known as workforce analytics, and that is the focus of the book, The Power of People. This book sets out how to establish, operate and lead workforce analytics to better serve organizational ambitions.
