Global Human Capital Trends 2020 - Deloitte's Annual Report

Posted by Mathew French on 18 June 2020

Every year, Deloitte conducts an extensive study on the emerging and prevailing trends in human capital and the future of work. Each year, the post we write on our HR blog about that report is always one of the most popular. In 2020, the Human Capital Trends Report highlights an intensifying combination of economic, social, and political issues impacting HR and business leaders. These factors continue to put pressure on businesses to operate in a more socially oriented manner (a continuation of 2019's trend, which we covered in a previous HR blog post), and to reinvent their organisations around a more ethical and human focus. Let's take a look at the highlights of this year's report and discover the HR metrics that matter in 2020 and beyond.

Better Decision Making With HR Dashboards and Data Visualisation

Posted by Mathew French on 14 April 2020

HR Dashboards are an indispensable tool for HR professionals. They provide critical data visualisation for relevant metrics across the entire employee lifecycle, including hiring, retention, onboarding, performance, and more. Today's #HRTech makes it possible to purchase dashboard apps to integrate with your other business systems. Or if you have developers within your organisation you can build your own dashboards using excel or by developing your own system. But really, what you want is an HR system with customisable Dashboards built in to your HR software itself. In this HR Blog we look at the benefit of using dashboards to get a real-time overview of your data so that you can gain valuable business intelligence to run an agile and successful organisation using HR automation.

Productive HR Reporting: Essential Metrics For Your HR Dashboard

Posted by Mathew French on 14 April 2020

Productive HR reporting is critical to the ongoing success of every business. Developing an HR Dashboard that visualises your HR data in a way that tells the story of your business to the right people in the right way, is your pathway to growth and success. However, it is incredibly difficult for anyone in a business to make informed decisions when HR business partners and other stakeholders lack insight into their own operations and employees. To ensure that leadership and management have the information they need to make informed decisions, HR Professionals need to provide HR data in a way that informs, engages, inspires and persuades. In this week's HR Blog, we explore how to build the right Dashboards for productive reporting on your HR Metrics.

Key Metrics You Need in Your HR Reports - 2017 Edition

Posted by Mathew French on 22 August 2017

We recently discovered a fantastic article on LinkedIn that outlined 70HR Metrics you should be measuring in your business. One of our most popular blog posts ever is a 2013 post 'Key Metrics You Need in Your HR Reports,' so after stumbling upon this great article, we thought we'd do a 2017 edit to keep you up to date with HR best practice. What was also interesting in this article is that the author has offered for free, a breathtaking array of excel spreadsheets related to all manner of calculating, tracking and reporting HR metrics. Very generous, very useful AND in 2017, a total waste of time AND money (money that you would pay an employee to input and update the information to provide results for all the metrics). You might think that is a pretty mean thing to say, but having said this before, I’m going to say it again. If you’re still using excel spreadsheets to calculate your HR metrics or manage your HR processes, you’re living in the dark ages AND wasting precious time AND money. Today’s HR platforms give users the capacity to access these types of metrics at the click of your mouse – no updating of spreadsheets required. There. I’ve said it, now let’s take a look at the categories of key metrics you need in your HR reports – 2017 edit.

HR Metrics, Data Analytics and Talent Intelligence

Posted by Mathew French on 13 August 2015

Having great talent intelligence – that is an accurate understanding of the skills, expertise, and qualities of your employees - is essential for the decision makers in every organisation. However, the available evidence suggests that despite the importance of having accurate talent intelligence, it is often not done well. Why is it, that in 2015, this is still the case?
