This data-driven strategy improves recruitment, performance management, and employee satisfaction tactics, resulting in a more effective and aligned team.

Rather than making assumptions, HR analytics employs concrete data to forecast trends, streamline processes, and build a more strategic and impactful HR function.

Metrics like turnover rates and engagement scores add depth. This mix helps HR comprehend trends, make informed decisions, and craft strategies that resonate with employees. Data-driven working and analytics skills have evolved significantly in the past five years. HR workers must learn to harness the power of data analytics to make more informed decisions.

This course is designed to educate the HR Manager on how to use Excel as a better tool for their Office work.
