HR Analysis

HR analytics: Who's fooling who? by Max Blumberg

I'm going to argue here that many organisations using HR analytics to improve their people programmes are fooling themselves.

Let me explain: evidence-based HR analytics relies on a model something like this:

HR programme --> Competencies --> Employee performance --> Org performance

That is, you invest in workforce programmes to increase employee competencies ("the how") which in turn delivers increased employee and organisational performance ("the what").
