Comic: HR Analytics

Predictive analytics is great, but when it comes to HR, maybe spending more time on people will make it less necessary.

Steve should send his resume to Starbucks.

Brian Moore is a cartoonist and illustrator. His first brush with the world of IT was a very part-time gig applying software patches on a TRS-80 Model III. The patches were about four lines long and arrived in the mail, typed on letterhead. He has since moved on to computers ... View Full Bio

Re: HR will always be worthless
Stacey,

I like it when Ordinary Folks(who have a background in IT) accept the truth.

Technology is a means to an end(Better employee performance) rather than an End in itself entirely.

We've got so many senior Management folks on board(in some of the Biggest Companies around) who read up on some new fangled Technology or the other(even if its largely unproven) and insist on performing Root and Branch Overhaul(rather than Pilot projects).

That needs to stop right away!

Very well said. It's important to figure out which tools work for each individual, and analytics, of course, are tools.

Shamika,

For that to happen ;the Exit forms have to stop being of the "Generic" Kind and must give detailed scope for Detailed Answers as well as Recording(in Video Format) of those Interviews.

This will help HR Pros analyse the Exiting Candidates and develop more effective Management strategies tailored to the needs of all Current Employees in the best possible fashion.

Re: HR will always be worthless
Stacey,

There has to be a happy medium for sure;you need the right combination in place(neither 100% Analytics nor 100% Human-Intelligence).

I have no doubt that as companies gain more knowledge and expertise in this space they will eventually achieve the Happy Medium in place;You know what works best for them individually.

There is no One Size fits all Solution for all Companies.

Re: Predictive analytics for HR
@ Angelfuego

" I think proper planning, goal setting, and game plans are advantageous to both management and employees."


I think you have hit the nail on the head with this statement. Analytics are of little to no use if you don't have a clue how to interpret and use them.

@ asksqn

That is a sad fact. I have actually interviewed for a job that had stupid requirements, like the exact type of phone or tablet device they wanted me to own. I decided that if my education and experience isn't what gets me a job, than I don't want it anyway!

That is a sad reality. You would think that a career in STEM would be highly valued and demanded, but it seems not to be the case so much anymore.

@StaceyE

It's the reason that, while I enjoy tutoring anyone up to a level of basic competance in math, I do what I can to discourage people from pursuing careers in STEM, unless they come from WEALTHY families and won't need to depend on their employment for sustenance.

Re: turnover analytics
@kstaron

I think that some employers do not even know what analytics are. They would have no clue where to even start!
