HR Metrics and Analytics
Transforming HR Data into Business Insight
Please note we have updated the dates for the November 2020 program as of September 16, 2020.
In an increasingly data-driven world, the accurate evaluation of business programs and practices is key to identifying improvements and changes that will have the most positive impact. But what should you be measuring? And what is the best way to gather this important data?
This three-day program will provide you with essential knowledge and tools to understand metrics and transform that data into a powerful story for business knowledge and insight.
Learn. Design. Implement.
Our HR Metrics and Analytics workshop gives you the tools and skills to identify the information you need, understand it and use it to make meaningful recommendations and decisions in your workplace.
a) Find the right information
There’s no shortage of data that you can gather – but which metrics are the right ones? And how do you figure out what you should measure? We give you evidence-based tools and skills to better understand what you should be measuring, and why. You’ll also learn about data sources, financial statements, sample sizes and how to use five different analytics tools in key HR areas, including remuneration, recruitment, retention, employee engagement and labour relations.
b) Make your case
We use relevant case-study exercises and real-world examples that clearly demonstrate how to use your data to identify problems and implement evidence-based solutions. We’ll also show you how to combine qualitative and quantitative measures to create a more detailed analysis. You’ll be able to take these new skills and tools back to your organization for immediate implementation.
c) Contribute to the bottom line
Transform your metrics and analytics into programs and processes that make a true impact. You’ll learn how to present your data using charts and visuals, and develop skills for using your information to have informed, fact-based discussions and strategy sessions with business leaders.
