Increasingly, we are seeing a broad trend toward data-driven decisions across a wide variety of subject areas. This is especially true in HR. “HR Analytics is an emerging discipline that can help enable HR to fulfill the promise of becoming a true strategic partner,” Alec Levenson wrote in HR Strategic Review in 2005.
Five years later, however, we still need more information that conveys the range of research projects organizations are undertaking in this critical area. Even more importantly, we need empirical data on the analytics approaches that have proven to be most useful. The more information and knowledge we have to guide us as we transition to a more data-driven profession and leverage a broader range of datasets and methodological approaches, the better off we will be as a profession and as practitioners.
