Technology plays an integral role in enabling businesses to have access to insightful analytics.

If you’re like everyone else in HR today, you’re probably thinking about how your organisation can handle data better.

Workforce analytics has become an essential business tool for leading companies that view workforce performance as the key to improving company results, according to a new global survey of business leaders by Harvard Business Review Analytics Services. Workforce analytics is a set of integrated capabilities (technologies, metrics, data, and processes) to measure and improve workforce performance. The goal is simple: put the right
people with the right skills in the right work, provide them with the necessary training and development opportunities, and engage and empower them to perform at their highest possible level.
E-learning is already known to be the most efficient and cost effective way to deliver training to a workforce. However, the best way to truly prepare employees for meeting organisational objectives is to focus the training on three major areas of skill development. Using a learning solution that is capable of delivering optimal training on each type of skill and checking for comprehension by examining the outcomes from other HR processes will drive performance within the company as employees develop their soft, functional and compliancebased skills.
The war for talent is back. But this time, the way to win it isn’t by solidifying your employment brand or ramping up your recruiting machine. In fact, there are probably plenty of people aware of and even applying to your jobs. So why is it still so hard to find the right talent?
What you see isn’t always what you get with HR, talent, and learning software. Did you know that, even with the rigour frequently put into selection, two-thirds of HR software projects fail to produce at least half of the expected benefits? Or how about that a recent research project from Clarkson University determined that there was no link between HR software and HR’s ability to be more strategic? Even though HR technology is often sold as “best practices in a box,” looks can be deceiving. To avoid being duped by pretty demos of software with no substance and find a partner that can meet the hidden complexities that exist in your unique processes, you need to ask the right questions.

Introduction to the Value on Investment (VOI) model
Deep-dive analytics tools have completely transformed the way many organizations do business—helping remove the guesswork from major areas of operations, and provide everybody with the clear, actionable answers they need to make informed business decisions.
The benefits of sophisticated analytics are being reaped across the business. But according to Deloitte, HR is lagging behind— with only 14 percent of companies using analytics in HR, compared to 77 percent using these tools in Operations1.
As we turn our attention to 2017, HR leaders have their destinies and those of the modern workforce firmly in their hands.
Businesses have never faced such extreme levels of uncertainty. On a macroeconomic level, they are still unclear on how and when the UK’s “Brexit” from Europe will proceed while trying to predict how a political outsider in the White House will affect global markets.

In the world of HR, many of us talk about employee engagement, and the intrinsic link between engagement and productivity is well understood. But how many of us truly understand the reasons why? And do we truly recognize just how important it is to the HR department and the business as a whole?
These are troubling times if you are looking for talent. As I talk with organizations, one theme continues to come up: “We can’t fill open jobs… and people that join us don’t stay for very long.” All you have to listen to is one of the many economic reports that are on the news every day to hear that the economy is strong and jobs are plentiful.
Whether they’re millennials born with technology in their DNA, or experienced workers who’ve become accustomed to highly connected digital experiences in all areas of their lives—digital employees are everywhere.
According to Gartner, today, every employee is a digital employee. The flexible, digital, data-driven experiences they all receive as consumers have given them extremely high expectations of every service they engage with—including internal ones such as HR.

Today’s business climate demands that corporations have a flexible computing infrastructure. Because of the agility it provides, cloud computing is garnering interest in many organisations. As they look at such possible deployments, however, some CIOs become hamstrung by security concerns. They feel that the traditional method of securing information in premises-based systems is the best way. While that option worked for many years, the threat landscape today is more diverse and more potentially damaging than ever before.
