Human resource managers are currently embracing talent analytics like never before. Companies are evaluating and analysing raw data to derive valuable insights which are helping them to hire the right talent, retain them as well as help them learn and grow internally.
Data to do analytics
Talent analytics companies take into account all the data, rather than limited samples, so a full-fledged picture emerges.
It looks for patterns in the data and discovers critical connections that might otherwise go unnoticed. Such data can be related to employees' pre-employment assessments to background checks to social media profiles.
How data will gather
They also gather data on the characteristics of their most successful employees. When big data is tapped this way, HR managers no longer need to depend on intuitions of interviewers and hiring managers or rely on obsolete hiring tools of yesteryears.
