Since 2016, I’ve been sharing in this blog many kinds of content that aimed to push the People Analytics profession forwards. I published interviews with colleagues and clients; I covered conferences and events; I updated my famous list of books and explored tech solutions; I expressed my opinions and shared many experiences. But I think that the tutorials and simulations are among the most valuable texts, if I may judge based on google analytics. So, for your convenience, and hopefully, for your continuous learning, here’s my People Analytics tutorials collection. Stay tuned! So much more to come in 2022!

Visualizing Absenteeism: A Practice With Open Data

(January 2022) Visualization is crucial in a People Analytics project, both in the data exploration phase and the reporting. However, from my experience and endeavor to promote People Analytics practices among HR professionals, there is another advantage in compelling visualization. An appealing and powerful visualization creates attention, curiosity, and enthusiasm that may assist in overcoming learning barriers. To demonstrate how visualization is helpful, I picked a relatively common topic in People Analytics: Employee absenteeism. In the following sections, I present two types of hypotheses regarding absenteeism, specifically, how employee background and work characteristics are related to absenteeism… Read More

Predicting Employee Attrition: R vs. AI

(February 2017) We are all familiar with the story of David and Goliath, a shepherd who has defeated a mighty warrior, and the allegory of the underdog beating the giant. Is this story applicable to “People Analytics”? In today’s fictional battle, the giant would be R, the super-power open-source programming language. The underdog would be DMWay, the “new kid in town,”: An Israeli start-up that develops an AI approach to predictive analytics and claims to enable faster and better predictive models. Will their combat end as the old myth? Which of the two rivals enables us to build better predictive models? What can we learn from their contest about “People Analytics” practices? Let’s begin the fight in the arena of predicting employee attrition… Read More

Gender Pay Gap and People Analytics: A Practice with Open Data

(January 2019) Educating and mentoring HR professionals to embrace the practices of People Analytics is a challenge. There are barriers, and it takes time and effort to overcome them. However, one issue remained unsolved for years: The lack of open HR data to practice. Although there are many inspiring case studies of People Analytics, organizations don’t share their people’s data for learning. Simulation-based data may be an alternative, though usually it is oversimplified and lacks authentic or exciting patterns to explore. In my recent teaching initiatives, I demonstrated to HR managers that their academic background, professional experience, and common sense are enough to explore organizational occurrences and effects based on data… Read More

Employee Engagement Survey: 3 essential processes that follow data collection

(January 2017) Employee engagement is defined as an “emotional attachment” of employees to the company and their efforts as a result. Measuring employee engagement in a survey may determine how avid employees are, regarding their jobs and roles, how valued they feel at work, and how they consider the company’s values and missions. Employee engagement is associated with desired business outcomes, including productivity creativity, customer satisfaction, and profitability. Employee Engagement Surveys are conducted annually among the entire workforce in the company. Traditionally, the survey analysis and results include measuring employee engagement and organizational practices that may elicit or influence it… Read More

Effectiveness of employee evaluation process

(October 2016) Organizations conduct periodic employee evaluations. Traditionally, the evaluation process is performed by managers or supervisors, but some organizations expand the process to include other participants, i.e., professional managers, colleagues, and employees themselves. The employee evaluation consists of various subjects, which usually consists of an assessment of performance, both in mission and interpersonal aspects, a comparison between performance and expectations or goals, identification of training and professional development needs, promotion, and compensation. Considering the investment in the employee evaluation process and the organizational capacity that the process takes, a new managerial need emerges… Read More
