Learn about the art of predictive analytics & Power BI when paired with workforce data

Recorded December 2017

What is workforce analytics?

 

Simply put, workforce analytics is the discovery, interpretation, and communication of meaningful patterns in workforce-related data, which helps organizations to make more informed decisions and improve overall employee performance. Having insight into employee behavior can reduce turnover, lowering the number of replacement employees needed, thereby reducing the costs to hire. As an example, the Human Capital Benchmarking Report claims that the average cost-per-hire is $4,129, while the average time it takes to fill a given position is 42 days - that's a lot of potential savings!

In BlueGranite's recent webinar, we demonstrated how to utilize workforce data with predictive analytics and Power BI. At the end of the session, you and your team will have a deeper understanding of how to turn analytic insights into action by proactively uncovering issues and making strategic decisions based on accurate data predictions.
