A significant amount of data is available to the managers, which can assist them in identifying, recruiting, and rewarding the best personnel. The managers will no longer have to rely on intuition and rule of thumb to make HR decisions as the metrics can give them a complete overview and guide them to the correct decision. Organizations are always screening the developments in the HR analytics market to keep up with the latest innovations and best practices. Here are the top trends in HR analytics.

Embracing New Data Sources

Companies are realizing the power of analytics and are looking at new data sources in addition to incorporating all existing data sources to make an accurate analysis of their workforce. For instance, companies are encouraging their employees to engage in wellness programs such as bring your own wellness (BYOW). The BYOW concept relies on employees carrying their own fitness measuring devices to the workplace allowing companies to collect data to organize fitness challenges or events such as exercising, yoga, or walking.

Capability Gap in People Analytics

Although a majority of the organizations realize the value of HR analytics, only a handful of them has the expertise to extract value out of the data to improve the HR processes. There have been numerous reports suggesting that only about 10-20% of the organization who strongly feel the importance of HR analytics is actually strong in this area.
