About This Program

Understanding and leveraging human resources data can help your organization increase its ability to meet business goals and drive engagement throughout your company.

Admittedly, leveraging people analytics is not always a straightforward and simple process. Data can be messy, and may be located in multiple systems across separate teams. Sometimes, even the initial project to locate, clean, and integrate data can be extensive. However, the payoff of harnessing the data's power can be substantial--by increasing the organization's ability to inform and solve business problems.

This course will guide you through the people analytics landscape--from basics on terminology in the analytics space to guidance on how to set up or expand your team, to how to act on the insights. You will hear about approaches used by organizations to get through the adoption curve, including use cases on turnover, employee engagement, employee selection, and diversity and inclusion.

Whether you are just starting out on the people analytics journey or if you are well underway, you'll leave the course with a practical plan of how to take the next steps to tackle HR-relevant business challenges.
