Understanding and using data is the future foundation of making important HR decisions.

The need for HR professionals who know how to use data analytics to forecast and make vital decisions is growing.

Attend HR Analytics and be prepared to:

  • Take data you already have and turn it into decision-making reports without having to buy new software or use outside consultants
  • Provide essential insights to your company that can only come from data analytics
  • Understand your employees' age and experience allowing you to better predict when they are going to leave or retire
  • Develop a recruitment strategy based upon a thorough knowledge of your current talent and future talent needs
  • Train your current workforce to be ready for opportunities when they develop, creating a path of progression and increased retention
  • Position your HR department as a strategic partner, using hard data to help make important decisions

Who Should Attend This Course?

  • HR Professionals
  • Those who want to take their career to the next level and get ahead of the curve
  • Anyone who is interested in data science and how big data can play a role in organizations

You will get hands-on practice and receive specific code to build your own tables in class so a laptop is required. Gain resources and skills you can immediately implement when you return to work.


"We will be using Excel. With many data visualization applications available, and many that cost more than organizations are immediately willing to contribute until they have seen clear potential for ROI; Excel can be an excellent and universal tool. We will be building complex visualizations in Excel, after we have learned how to mine metadata from our current data for HR purposes.

The idea is to give you the mindset and tools to build in any software application so that even with just Excel you can build robust visualizations that can be used to generate data driven decisions."
