People Analytics Foundations

Learn about the role and place of people analytics in today’s business environment, your career, and why it is becoming a critical skill for HR to be able to position itself as a true partner to its key business stakeholders.

Set Up Your HR Tech Stack

This lesson will cover the most important questions to ask when choosing your HRIS, ATS, LMS, or any other tool related to people data management. Setting up the right foundations from the start will make integrations easier later on, and help you combine data from multiple sources to uncover the story behind it.

Data Health & Data Ethics

Learn how to create a strong data foundation for your people analytics function. The insights you gather from your HR metrics are as strong as the quality of your HR data. This is why data health and strong governance with a clear purpose, standards, privacy, ethics, and security, represent an underlying element of all analytics.

How to Choose a People Analytics Tool

Find out which questions to ask and what important aspects to take into account when considering to either build or buy a people analytics tool, especially if this is your first people analytics solution. Both options carry a set of challenges and risks — and this lesson is designed to help you navigate them.
