WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PeopleFluent®, a leading human capital management technology company, today announced discussion highlights from the company’s global user conference WISDOM 2015 breakout session “The Role of Analytics in Driving Knowledge Innovations,” featuring CEO and Chief Research Officer Mark Smith at Ventana Research. Smith presented research on how companies can be more innovative in their approach to talent analytics, especially in an effort to encourage engagement and retention.
Smith’s research centered on engagement as a combination of collaboration, better insight, and good employee development, with data as an integral part of each facet. He kicked off the discussion by revealing Ventana’s research on the state of HR analytics: while 78 percent of professionals see actionable analytics as important, 51 percent are dissatisfied with their analytic processes and 63 percent state that the data they need is not available. Smith’s presentation then addressed the specific places that analytics can impact workforce engagement, especially where it contributes to learning, talent management, and collaboration.
