People are the real numbers – Workforce analytics has come of age

HR teams see the value of HR analytics, but they focus on transactional data rather than predictive insights.

As the driver of an organization’s people agenda, the HR function is in a key position to deliver sustainable competitive advantage by being equally (if not more) accountable for achieving profitable growth as other mission-critical functions such as Finance and IT.


KPMG’s HR Transformation professionals advise and work with HR and other senior executives to increase the value of HR in a number of mission-critical areas. They help leadership teams to:


  • Identify and manage talent by focusing on the people and roles that deliver differentiated value.
  • Create authentic organization cultures of sustainable cost control, innovation and performance improvement.
  • Provide people-driven outcomes that drive business performance.
  • Optimize HR information systems to enable leaders to make better decisions while providing employees and managers with the benefit of ‘fit for purpose’ processes.
  • Predict where and when talent is needed through strategic workforce planning.
  • Create tailored performance systems that drive market leadership.



“The Human Resources function is in the best position to deliver sustainable competitive advantage to the enterprise through its workforce. If HR isn’t bringing strategic value to your organization – you’re missing a crucial opportunity to convert the full potential of your people into financial performance and market value.”
