To some, the concept of Data-Driven HR sounds too harsh. But the truth is that it’s a strategically important tool for HR to increasingly become a key player in driving the business in the right direction. Data should nuance and enhance current HR processes, not replace them.
Companies that are data-driven today are making objective, faster and better decisions for the organization that are in line with the direction of the business. In an ever-changing world and working life, being able to make correct decisions quickly becomes an essential skill. A data-driven approach will also mean prioritizing initiatives that data predicts will have a positive impact – even if they may not intuitively be the most obvious projects to initiate.
