Your Future Is Already At Hand
What if I said that you could predict the future?
No, not by using time travel or a psychic, (as I’m sure the lottery numbers might be more on your mind), but by using insights in your HR data, to predict behaviour, trends and relationships in order to stay one step ahead of the competition.
So with this in mind, why do so many organisations overlook using insight in their recruitment process?
For vendor insights, we provide The HRIS World Content Series: Next Gen Vendor™ to promote their companies, products, services, and visions -- the Next Gen Vendor™ insights consists of 3 series...
- The HRIS World Vendor Spotlight™ focuses on the different aspects of the SMB / SME vendor, their services and software
- The HRIS World Vendor Interview Series™ focuses on the SMB and Enterprise vendor’s decision makers alike, their thoughts for the future of work as well as their own company, and what they see as the challenges coming up in the industry
- The HRIS World Enterprise Software Options™ focuses on the different aspects of the Enterprise vendor, their services and software
All 3 series can be found through the second menu at the top of any page under The HRIS World Content Series™
The Vendor Interview Series is provided in email, podcast and video interview format while the other two series are provided in a mix of the three to supplement the content.
You will find various aspects of a vendors business as well as any announcement of webinars, group demos, and conferences a vendor may be conducting.
If you are a vendor wanting to contribute to either series via a post or interview, feel free to click the blue contact us button on the lower right of your screen to let us know how we can assist -- or if you are reading this by our newsletter, then hit the reply button to get back to us!
You Already Have What You Need to Get Started
Research has shown that 86% of companies reported no analytics capabilities in HR, a statistic which to me is absolutely baffling.
You may wonder, “How can I then start using insights to gain an advantage over this 86%?“
You’re probably expecting me to say “know your data” and yes that is a key part to the process, but jumping straight into the data is like answering a question before it’s been asked — not to mention hoping your answer overlaps the question.
You’ll be going in blind and although you may still find interesting data that will make you think “wow I never knew that”, it’s unlikely anything of real substance is likely to come from it.
Step 1 – Correctly identify the problem
The first step has to be finding a problem you want solving.
Think about the questions you seem to always be asking yourself…
Do you have a low employee retention rate?
Maybe you want to improve your quality of hire? Or
Are you having trouble knowing where you should be recruiting?
Once you have your question the real power of using analytics can begin.
Step 2 – Build Familiarity
The next step is getting to know your data, search through and find stats that directly affect the question you want answering.
A good starting point is to look at your top, medium and under-performing staff…
Analyse what trends are associated with each segment.
Look into data such as how many jobs have they had?
How many promotions have they received?
And what source they were recruited from?
When collating the data, you will be able to see what makes the most successful employees at your company and the trends that lead employees to be less successful or likely to leave.
Step 3 – Take Action
Once you have these answers, use them.
Start implementing your newly found knowledge to save time and resources in your current recruitment process.
Top performers seem to come from a certain type of advertising?
Then place your resources there!
Employee referrals tend to stay at the company longer?
Place more emphasis on this!
Once you have the data it’s down to you to implement!

So why should you start thinking about implementing predictive insights?
Research shows that 67% of companies rated themselves as weak at using HR data to predict workforce performance and improvement.
Now compare this stat to the 8% that rated themselves as strong.
I know ‘the grass isn’t always greener on the other side’, but what side of the fence would you want to be on?
The side using predictive insights to help reduce costs, improve quality of hire and retention, or the side not progressing and still making the same mistakes.
There is a huge competitive advantage to be gained.
