In recent years, HR analytics has also gained significant buy-ins from senior executives. However, not many organisations are doing it right due to a combination of technical, cultural and capabilities factors. One of the key factor is the lack of analytics talents among the HR team. While organisations may utilise external contractors to jump start its analytics journey or work in specific analytics projects, the potential of HR analytics can only be sustainable if the organisation is able to build such capabilities internally.

The Foundational program (one-day) is aimed at HR professionals and managers who are in their early stage of HR analytics journey. The program focuses on building foundational understanding about the concepts of HR analytics, the key components and building blocks of HR analytics, and the applications of HR analytics to inform, explain and guide decision making.
