Publisher's Summary

Your CEO just came to you, the HR leader, and said she was hearing rumors about the turnover rate going up. She asks you why this might be happening and how it is could be affecting the bottom line. Are there certain leadership issues? Are engagement levels changing? Is there a problem with the company culture?

These are all logical questions. You have hunches for answers, but you have no way to prove those hunches. You know your CEO is going to want data to support any argument you make.

You are sure that the answers to her questions are buried in the employee data collected in the different HR systems you have. You have been reading about "HR analytics", and you wonder how you would answer her question differently if you really understood the data about your people.

Quantifiably Better provides a path to follow in search of these answers. It will help you if you are just getting started with your HR analytics initiative, or if you are looking for ways to expand your existing HR analytics practice. In the end, you will find that the insights you desperately seek are easier to find than you ever imagined.

Essential reading for 21st century HR leaders

This book is a no-nonsense guide to applying data and analytics to your HR practice. Geared more for firms on the medium to large size, Steve VanWieren gives the reader real, actionable steps to move any HR department from slow and reactive, to strategic and proactive through the use of data. There are so many data points that HR has access to, and too often we're scared to use them. Steve walks you through how powerful that data is, even if you don't think it's 100% accurate. A must read for any HR leader who wants to be taken seriously by the C-Suite.

A good place to start

I have been asked to dive into our turnover data to the dentist trends, problem areas and to make records recommendations. This short book gave me many ideas on where to start and how to lay out my plan, which was exactly what I was looking for.
