Between employee engagement drivers, productivity KPIs and retention metrics, big data can offer a broad spectrum of opportunities for improvements. Discovering trends in recruiting needs or performance technology can help companies best dedicate resources, as well as find strong fits for skill sets. It also allows for a path to improve staff morale by isolating elements that can hamper productivity.
Every employer strives to improve employee engagement. Employees are driven by factors that add to, or subtract from, their engagement with their work. The challenge is knowing which drivers matter and how best to impact them. Leveraging big data, not just annual benchmark surveys but also critical quarterly pulse surveys, can provide the clarity needed to know which engagement drivers to focus on. – Todd Richardson, Emplify
I’ve always been a big fan of leveraging big data to increase the quality of my hires, but technology will never replace the human element of HR. We use both a cognitive ability test and a personality test to add quantitative data to the interview process. Tracking metrics that are common to our most successful hires helps me to make better decisions over time and lowers our risk! – Brett Comeaux, LG Fairmont
Labor management can be made much easier by utilizing the data that most organizations already collect.
