A Case for Six Sigma and Analytics in HR

Posted by Pallas Athena Elacio on Wednesday, May 10, 2017,

Mention Six Sigma and words such as, quality, cleanliness, perfection, robust, repeatable, mechanical come to mind. And much as it has become a “go to” tool for improvement in almost several departments such as Finance and Manufacturing, seldom has it been practiced in HR. The connotation is because HR involves non-tangible elements such as Communication, Employee Relations, Succession Planning, Hiring and Conflict Management  that at first glance do not seem to directly ...

'Foresee' a Culture of Analytics

Posted by HR Analytics on Thursday, January 15, 2015, In : Analytics 
The years leading up to 2015 affirmed and reaffirmed that we indeed have lots of data. And with lots of data all around us, organizations should really be thinking about how to leverage data to get ahead not only of competition but to get ahead of everyday transactions and to be able to predict and control what's coming down the pike.

Is "HR Analytics" Just Another Buzzword?

Posted by HR Analytics on Friday, January 17, 2014, In : Data 

We heard "HR analytics" quite a bit last year but was it just another buzzword in 2013?  

It doesn't have to be.  With data still continuously flowing, with transactions and processes still continuously getting automated, HR analytics is something that is a lot more than an overhyped buzzword.  How you identify the metrics that matter and how you tie the data to your business strategies are really the factors that keep it alive and going.  Sure, 'analytics' sounds like just another buzzword or...

Psychologists on Big Data in HR

Posted by HR Analytics on Thursday, October 17, 2013, In : Org Psychology 

Recently, I was asked about the role of I/O Psychologists in HR analytics and this whole "big data" movement. And so what I am learning as I researched the topic, and just as I had suspected, is that there are many others in the I/O Psychology field who are also involved in HR analytics and big data. I think I/O Psychologists are in a very favorable position in this big data movement.  The required graduate-level statistics courses are really helpful in preparing I/O Psychologists for the q...
