Course Description

Workforce analytics is the use of empirical data to improve the management of an organization's human resources. The goal is for students to develop analytical literacy that will enable them to understand and apply fundamental analytic techniques, engage knowledgeably with data scientists in the application of more complex forms of analysis, interpret the analytical reporting of others with greater sophistication, and apply empirical evidence to employee-related decisions. The course emphasizes the link between workforce analytics and strategic decision making at all levels of leadership that will guide strategic performance management, talent development, and optimal investment in human capital. It is thus a high value leadership tool central to the achievement of organizational goals.
