Course Introduction

“83% of HR leaders from organisations across Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong agree
that HR analytics is helping to build the long-term strategy of their business.” – Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), 2015

Over the past decade, there has been a rise in organizations adopting data analytics as one of the core competencies for growth. This growth was built upon the growing evidence of the value that data analytics creates; specifically, how it augments and improves the decision-making process in organizations. While HR came to analytics a little later in the game, leaders in organizations are recognizing the potential it could hold and hence adoption has also been growing.

Many organizations have embarked on their own HR Analytics journey; however, many have yet to see
significant returns on their investments. One of the key factors is the lack of analytics capabilities within the
HR team. While organisations may utilise external contractors to jump start their analytics journey or work
on specific analytics projects, the potential of HR analytics can only be sustainable if the organisation is
able to build such capabilities internally.

This two-day course is designed to provide a comprehensive hands-on solution to organise, monitor and
analyse HR data with the objective of providing tremendous value to organisations. This is done through
informing what is going on with employees, explaining the reasons underpinning organisational successes
and failures, and guiding future decision making with greater confidence.

This workshop is targeted at HR practitioners who would like to build upon their prior knowledge of HR
analytics, enhance their capabilities and acquire essential skills in data preparation, data analysis,
statistical knowledge, and data visualisation. The workshop will be delivered through various case studies
and interactive hands-on exercises that span across many HR applications (including Talent acquisition,
Employee retention, Employee engagement, Talent development etc.), delegates will be able to effectively
communicate business value to senior management, and witness how analytics can serve as powerful
insights for maximum business impact.
