Data-Driven HR: Creating Value with HR Metrics and HR Analytics
Which job applicants have hidden talents? Which job roles are most prone to long-term absenteeism? Which of your teams really satisfy customers? Many organizations wrestle with these questions, even as they sit atop a treasure trove of valuable information collected by their HR information systems and other business software.
This book, a Dutch best seller now translated into English, shows how to use the data you already have to answer burning questions like these. It demonstrates how you can progressively refine your HR analytics by defining, implementing, and monitoring HR interventions, policy, and strategy. This data-driven approach puts HR in a better position to help the organization improve its performance and increase employees’ productivity and job satisfaction. HR metrics and HR analytics help you create value for the organization by: formulating business questions that are relevant to HR; using all available data, including big data; to reveal patterns and correlations within the organization; proactively identifying trends, risks, and opportunities; and developing predictive models.

HR professionals and HR scholars struggle to reform HRM into a strong profession with high reputation and credibility. Important ways to enhance the reputation and credibility of HRM are HR Metrics and HR Analytics. The book written by Irma Doze and Toine Al is
an excellent tool to learn more about these methods. A “must read” for both management students, HR professionals, and HR scholars.”
