HR’s function historically has been driven largely by instinct. But today, with the ability to extract insights and information from big data, HR can now proactively shape an organization’s culture and bottom line, rather than react to it.
Gainesville, FL (PRWEB) June 12, 2014
SumTotal® Systems, LLC, the largest independent provider of learning and HR solutions, today announced its June webinar series focusing on how organizations can use HR information and other big-data analytics to improve workforce productivity, meet regulatory requirements and improve their bottom line.
HR departments house much of an organization’s critical compliance and workforce data, but few have the learning-, workforce- and talent-management systems (LMS, WFM or TM) to analyze and interpret information real time because it’s often stored in individual system silos. Studies show that:
- More than 98% of the world’s information is now stored digitally and the volume of the data is exponentially increasing, having quadrupled since 2007. (1)
- About half of businesses lack confidence that they will be able to keep up with constantly changing human resources (HR) laws and regulations. (2)
- Employment lawsuits have increased by more than 400% in the past 14 years. (3)
“HR’s function historically has been driven largely by instinct. But today, with the ability to extract insights and information from big data, HR can now proactively shape an organization’s culture and bottom line, rather than react to it,” said SumTotal Senior Vice President of Products and Technology Humair Ghauri. “HR executives can gain an enormous amount of rich information about their workforce using analytics. From highlighting compliance and productivity data to identifying inefficiencies in processes, this information can transform an organization’s ability to act and adapt to changing business environments. The value of big data and other integrated solutions in HR is undeniable.”
SumTotal will host two webinars in June to discuss tactics HR, learning, talent and workforce executives can use to leverage big data to motivate employees, redefine processes, and harness technology and information to optimize the workforce.
