In a dynamic world, the role of HR is central in tapping the vast potential of human capital, and interestingly, blending it with automation and digitization in unique ways. HR analytics is pivotal in identifying, measuring and articulating the objectives and outcomes of different programs.

What if you can:

* Predict which high performers were at risk of leaving six months before they walked out the door?

* Merge external data with your own business metrics to project workforce demand six, nine or even eighteen months from now?

* Triage incoming resumes overnight to predict employee success and tenure before you hire?

All this and more is possible with sophisticated technology and analytics as demonstrated by companies such as Google, Walmart, and American Express. To leverage analytics, you need to walk a path through reliable data, techniques of analysis, and formulation of hypothesis. This book is a practical, do it yourself handbook to convert analytics into an area of strength and maintain competitive advantage.

"If you want to hire, retain, and motivate the best people, you need to read this book and follow its advice."

-- Thomas H Davenport

[The book] is remarkable for its conversational style that simplifies the process of HR analytics even for those from non-quantitative backgrounds. There is substantial use of figures, charts, and diagrams, which facilitate learning of the key concepts. The exercises and cases provide an opportunity to apply the knowledge gained, making the book a complete short course in the field of HR analytics. However, the biggest value comes from the authors' focus on how analytics is actually done in the industry rather than on its theory, thereby making it a valuable guide for practitioners... [It] is an excellent introduction to the field of HR Analytics for students, academicians, and practitioners, and is equally valuable for analysts who wish to stay updated with the latest developments in the field of workforce planning, talent acquisition, retention, and engagement.
