Talk with any human capital executive about the field of human capital analytics and they will generally agree: the best is yet to come. That doesn’t mean that many companies aren’t already performing incredible feats with people data—a few are profiled in this report—the statement is a testament to the opportunity that most can see in this burgeoning field. And it’s a testament to the constant new and innovative ways professionals are using people-related data to impact their organizations. This study surveyed analytics professionals in organizations of all sizes worldwide, and asked very pointed questions on how those organizations are using human capital analytics today, if at all. The results were more affirming than they were surprising:
- Budgets for human capital analytics are increasing along with executive commitment.
- Relatively few companies are using predictive analytics now, but expect to in the future.
- Most are using analytics to support strategic planning and organizational effectiveness.
Successful companies tend to be those that purposefully use data to anticipate and prepare rather than to react to daily problems.
It’s clear in both the data from the survey and follow-up interviews that were conducted, that the future focus of
professionals in the human capital analytics field will increasingly be on using analytics to guide strategic decisions and affect
organizational performance. To sum up the state of human capital analytics in one word: Promising.
