You may not be able to hire your ideal People Analytics resource. Yet.

People Analytics sits at the center of a capability intersection. At the intersection of Human Resources, Information Technology, Analytics, and Statistics — a combination of competencies that is still fairly rare. An HR Analytics Manager and Business Partner might be responsible for data analysis, management reporting, quality assurance of data sets, working with subject matter professionals across the HR team, and more. Ideally, they would have experience with HRIS systems and dashboard and query tools. And the person with this particular background whose personality also meshes well with your culture? Today, they might not exist.

Whether you are "buying, renting, or building" talent, we can help you develop the team you want.

People Analytics is a relatively new discipline, and it may not be easy to find the right candidate with the right combination of process and technical background, intellectual curiosity, and analytical acumen. The first step is knowing what you really need. Those needs are shaped by your particular environment: build or buy. Our team can help you understand the tradeoffs of addressing each need and then work with you to define a skills and competency model that fits your organization. Then you’ll know exactly who and what skills to look for, and how will they adopt analytics.

We help organizations build an effective analytics governance and structure. We've served as coaches and trainers for a variety of organizations building their in-house People Analytics teams.
