Course Introduction

Best Buy Co., Inc. is able to predict that a 0.1% increase in employee engagement results in an increase of over $100,000 in the store’s annual income. Organizational Network Analysis (ONA) is a hot topic and a powerful technique to improve organization effectiveness. VoloMetrix found that the size and amount of a salesperson’s network inside their company is a more important leading indicator of sales, than the time salespeople spend with customers.

You will learn how to predict employee performance, predict employee resignation with ONA graph metrics, predict employee’s sales with ONA data, predict Ethnic & Gender Diversity’s impact on EBIT, predict training’s impact on customer service and sales, predict employee resignation, predict workplace accident, etc.
