The role of human resource analytics is to provide the organisation with insights that allow them to make better business decisions, thus improving business performance, while simultaneously improving the employee experience and well-being. Essentially people analytics focuses on people and the impact they drive, it provides an outsidein view of the value that HR delivers to the business.

Human resource analytics teams are now focusing more and more on using data to understand every part of how people impact business value and operations, embedding analytics into real-time applications and the way we work to derive insights and support the business in making data-driven decisions.
