  • Four HR analytics working groups over past several years
  • Rapid changes in the last 5 years…
  • Evolution of HR AnalyticsRecent applicationsWhere are companies today?
  • Still heavy on reporting, moving toward analytics
  • Some companies split these activities
  • Reporting skill set ≠ analytics skill set
  • Systems enhance/constrain opportunities
  • Data access issues
  • Relevance and accuracy of data
  • Different versions of the “truth”
  • Attention to data governance issues
  • Better org. design to support analytics
  • Teams with analytics as core responsibility
  • Diverse skill set needed; consulting, data analysis, HR, business
  • Background not always HR (oftentimes not)
  • Where do companies seem to be heading?
  • Better systems/greater linkage ability

  • More sophisticated designs
  • Moving beyond employee surveys

  • Faculty knowledge of literature and current practice
  • Expertise in research design and data analysis
  • Data source for research
  • Not selling solutions
  • Three brief examples
  • Key points, results, insights
  • Same turnover rates, different impact
  • Examined data from 5,631 employees and 75 work units in hospitality sector
  • Linked turnover rates with customer service quality scores and engagement survey questions
  • Key Insight: High turnover is only problematic under certain conditionsSometimes engagement doesn’t matter
  • Studied 12,500 employees in 115 work units in large transportation organization
  • Data from climate survey, absenteeism rates (HRIS), unemployment (BLS)
  • Key Insight: Engagement scores are not predictive of absences in times of job market uncertainty (dampening effect)Experience needed. But not too much…
  • Collected data from 350+ stores of a major U.S. retailer
  • Predicting store revenue per square foot
  • Examined effects of attrition and store manager tenure; controls for structural characteristics
  • Tenure positively related to sales, but only to a point; after which it is negative
  • Key Insight: More management experience is not necessarily better. Current project: Rethinking attrition metrics
  • Working with several hundred locations of a large service organization
  • Going beyond assumption that each departure is the same
  • New measure to account for who leaves, who remains, and the timing of departures
  • Key Insight (TBD): We can improve the accuracy of talent-related metrics that are used to forecast operational performance.
