How are Organisations really using Talent Analytics

The increasing importance of data in driving HR has been well-reported, with Bersin1 predicting in October 2015 that growth in the area is likely to increase exponentially over the next few years. Recent publications, such as Mercer’s 2016 HR Trends Study2, and Deloitte’s Global Human Capital Trends Report 20163, have highlighted predictive analytics as critical to the development and future of HR.

Despite the recognition of its importance, it is clear that many HR teams are struggling with the challenges of this new area, in terms of accessing data and expertise to answer the questions that need to be answered (CIPD4).

To gain further insight into the current status of talent analytics, a&dc initiated a survey, which was distributed to HR Directors and ‘Heads of’ HR functions/departments in March 2016.
