10Minutes on people analytics

March 2016

Data-based insights about your people can tell you a lot: which types of projects your employees are best at, which employees are likely to leave or stay, or how effectively teams work with their managers. And these people analytics can unlock data possibilities for better decisions in every function, from operations to sales to finance.
