Smarter HR Analytics for Better Business Outcomes

We know HR practices have a significant impact on an organization's bottom line, but too often HR leaders fail to demonstrate direct connections to the business metrics that matter most to executives.

Predicting Business Success goes beyond the usual slicing and dicing of HR data to show HR professionals how to definitively connect the dots between people data and business outcomes with a straightforward approach for scaling analytics to all leaders and all levels, detailed strategies for collecting key data elements and making talent profiles predictive, and proven guidelines for harnessing data for selection and recruitment, onboarding, employee surveys, training needs, and much more.


"A ‘must read’ for HR and business leaders who want to make better talent investment decisions using predictive analytics." – Stephen Young, Ph.D., Senior Research Scientist, Center for Creative Leadership

Predicting Business Success illuminates the next steps in the analytics evolution: how to connect people to real results and how to make it simpler for for leaders at all levels to take the right action.” – Rhonda S. Brandon, Chief Human Resources Officer, Duke Health System

“The approaches outlined in Predicting Business Success gives any organization proven guidelines for using data that reveals their own ‘secret sauce’ for success.” – Darryl Robinson, EVP/CHRO, Dignity Health
