Human Capital Analytics: Harness Data to Power Business Performance

Fewer than 20% of business leaders say that their companies' business units apply data to decision-making. In contrast, high-performance organizations achieve consistently strong results by leveraging the power of human capital analytics.

In the latest edition of i4cp's executive thinksheet series From Now to Next, available as a complimentary download, Dr. Laurie Bassi offers her insights on human capital analytics and explains how high-performance companies effectively apply that data to drive actionable business strategies.

Dr. Bassi is a globally recognized expert in human capital analytics and the founder and CEO of McBassi & Company--a leading-edge firm that employs behavioral economics to improve organizational performance. A former professor of economics and public policy at Georgetown, Dr. Bassi is the award-winning author of multiple books, including HR Analytics Handbook and Good Company: Business Success in the Worthiness Era.

In her exclusive interview with i4cp, Dr. Bassi argues that companies that equate human capital analytics with predicting turnover are overlooking compelling business issues that can be improved through analytics, such as productivity, customer service, cost control, profitability, safety, and managerial effectiveness.
