HR analytics adds new dimension to the human touch

Sponsored by SearchFinancialApplications

Introducing analytics to human resources may sound like a move away from the personal nature of HR. But as detached as numbers can seem, data can help HR personnel and managers make more informed decisions about their employees. And after years of talk, HR analytics is becoming a reality, with major vendors introducing software that analyzes internal and external data to help managers make decisions about whom to hire, promote and more.

This three-part handbook explores the possibilities of HR analytics. First, news writer Dan Ring talks with Marsh & McLennan's HR business intelligence director Paul Seo about the culture change needed to prepare for analytics projects. Next, contributor Albert McKeon talks to industry experts about getting past the challenges presented by HR analytics. Finally, Ring returns with an interview with consultant Josh Bersin that covers why and at what rate talent analytics is catching on.
