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.

Answering Business Questions with Data Insights

The people analytics journey usually starts with a business question that needs an answer. The first, most important step, is that you fully understand the question at hand and learn how to explore your HR metrics to find the answer. Learn how to ask the right people analytics questions and explore HR data to find the answers.

How to Speak the Language of Finance

HR and finance’s ability to work together and understand each other can be critical for an organization. To enable productive collaboration between HR and finance, HR needs to learn how to speak the language of finance, which is often also the language of key business stakeholders. Get equipped with finance skills that will give you a complete picture of your organization and get HR and finance on the same page.

Solving Business Problems Using the Agile HR Mindset

Learn how to translate the Agile HR mindset into your own context, think like a scientist, and apply an evidence-based approach when solving business problems.

Stakeholder Storytelling with the Help of Your Data

Analyses, numbers, and data can often be scary and hard to relate to. Knowing how to take your analyses, connect them to business challenges, and turn them into compelling stories that will capture and retain the focus of your stakeholders, is an art. Learn how to transform data into a story your stakeholders will understand. Get stakeholders on board, excited and ready to sign off on your recommendations.

Data-Informed HR Strategy

Relying only on instinct in the challenging business environment of today is no longer an option. Data tells you where you have been, what worked, what didn’t, and why. Learn how to create an HR strategy that keeps people in the center and is based on data insights that are coming from your HR tools.
