There’s a lot of focus today on Big Data and analytics and this extends into all areas of business, HR included. We get it and we’re huge proponents of its value—in fact we’ve built our business on workforce analytics and insight. We know that numbers can tell us what’s working and what’s not within an organization. They can identify how much it costs and how long it takes to recruit a new employee; where, when and who is leaving the organization; who the top performers are; where we experience the highest productivity, and so much more. So data can tell us a great deal about what, who and where things are happening in an organization.
Most organizations frequently look at turnover—but they do this at such an aggregate level the measure in and of itself is useless—and not really actionable.
