Human-ByDesign are a team of inspired people analytics professionals. We combine a range of diverse backgrounds, from recruitment & selection specialists to coaching and leadership development.
Why we advocate using data:
We believe that a crucial step in unlocking performance in people, is to first understand who they are. People analytics delivers greater depth and breadth of insight into what drives optimal performance in people at work.
Armed with this information organisations can tap into the full reservoir of employee potential and employees can align with career paths they are more suitable for and lead more fulfilled working lives.
Failing to bring the right people into your organisation with the right mix of skill and attitude carries a high cost in the form of high turn over and low engagement.
Introducing people analytics alongside HR processes helps to speed up execution and quantify the engagement factors that drive optimum performance.
Using metrics which show precisely what your employees’ value, HR strategies can be highly tailored to the unique strengths and needs of each individual.
Here’s how it works:
In recruitment: Objective data is used to support hiring managers identify candidates that are the ‘best fit’ candidates for the job. Using data reduces unconscious bias and increases objectivity in the selection process, resulting in better selection decisions.
In on – boarding: People analytics brings greater visibility to the needs of the employee at the point of hire. This helps to facilitate win – win conversations between the individual and the organisation, promoting loyalty, engagement and trust.
In learning and development: The data can be used to identify ‘strengths’ and ‘capability gaps’ in individuals and teams and facilitates highly targeted training and development interventions.
Adopting an evidence-based process, helps build trust and a ‘strengths focused’ culture, leveraging the capability of the individual employee and the organisation as a whole.
Taking the time to develop trust between the employee and your organisation, ensures your employees stay with your organisation longer and your organisation reaps the ROI of having a highly engaged workforce.
