In this competitive job market, employers are finding it increasingly difficult to recruit, retain, and motivate top talent. Yet, HR continues to rely on outdated employee engagement strategies that no longer work. As pressures increase from an evolving workforce, companies from startups to enterprises must establish HR & People Analytics now more than ever.

Organizations struggle to understand their complex existing and potential workforce and how to use each effectively. Which applicants should they recruit? Which of their hires do they wish to retain for their performance and productivity? Who amongst their internal talent do they wish to groom for career advancement? What are the most effective compensation, benefits and development options that will optimize the organization’s competitiveness in the marketplace? As we navigate today’s dynamic economy, do we need to retrench again or pursue growth? We want answers to these questions almost on a daily basis, in addition to the most obvious one: what is our headcount?

Built by industry experts on a solid foundation of years of experience in Marketing and Sales analytics across many industries, Datasticians’ HR & People Analytics Looker Block is built to address the above mentioned reporting needs. Since it is operating on the Looker platform, with all business logic residing in a centralized modeling layer, there’s never a need for manual reconciliation, and all analytics are surfaced in real-time.

The Block for HR & People Analytics works with data from Recruitment systems (JobVite, Kenexa, Taleo, Success Factors, etc.), HR data (Workday), and Professional Networking Social platforms, and ties them together into a single central warehouse (Redshift, Snowflake, RDBMS, Google BigQuery, etc.) to allow users to gain insight from a blended data spectrum.

Users can extend the Block to integrate compliance related data to monitor related metrics. HR no longer needs to run individual reports, but now from a single dashboard launch pad, can monitor US EEO, AAP, Vets100, and other compliance reporting to view the state of compliance to determine if action is necessary.

Dashboards include but are not limited to:

  • Overview
  • Workforce Effectiveness
  • Recruitment
  • Employee Performance
