People are the real numbers: HR analytics comes of age 

Most Human Resources teams understand the potential value of HR analytics, yet they continue to offer only generic and basic operational and transactional measurements – metrics that provide little in the way of predictive data or actual insights that could have a positive impact on the success of their organisation.

Yet if HR is to harbour any hope of proving its business value and earn its rightful place on the leadership team, senior HR managers need to approach analytics in a much more strategic way.

People are the real numbers introduces the KPMG Strategic Workforce Framework and provides a roadmap for turning HR's aspiration into reality.


Key insights

  • Too many systems exist for recording employee activity within organisations which leads to data fragmentation.
  • Too much attention is given to reporting data and unless this is linked to business outcomes and strategic goals, it will remain 'nice to have' rather than 'essential for growth'.
  • In many cases HR lacks the skills required to carry out the sort of complex statistical analysis required.
