Happy Wednesday!

So... Planning your Black Friday shopping? Don't worry; I'm not going to sell anything. However, learning is a perfect investment, so consider good bargains on my Kindle reading list, which includes +51 books in People Analytics and HR-tech.

Black Friday is also an excellent opportunity to consider online courses in R. I mention this for a reason. I know that the ordinary skill required for roles in People Analytics is, still, proficiency in Excel. However, research reveals that analysts' career paths, and the maturity of People Analytics practices in organizations, are limited without programming skills.


What I've been up to?

People Analytics is all about exploring, inferring, and communicating significant data patterns to initiate and support business decisions related to people in the organization.

In every organization, in any size or industry, leaders should consider leveraging workforce data for insights that enable determining what people are needed to support the business strategy, account for costs and benefits of talent, and maximize the return on investment in the workforce. Today in HRweek, we discussed how to start People Analytics

Myths and misconceptions about People Analytics still exist. To dismiss them and address the fears some HR practitioners may feel when it comes to People Analytics, I collaborated in an experts' panel to discuss how to start, establish partnerships, and deal with sensitive questions.
