Thirty-two percent of the global organizations surveyed feel “ready” or “somewhat ready” for people analytics (+8 percentage year over year), according to Deloitte’s Global Human Capital Trends 2016 survey. Further, 77 percent think people analytics is “important” or “very important.” The gap between these percentages is startling.
To close the gap, three key trends were revealed from 30+ interviews with HR practitioners. First, people analytics must add value to the business. Second, collection of analytics needs to be the new normal. Third, technology plays a critical role.
