Many companies have made great strides in collecting, utilizing, and analyzing data then further turning it into value. So far, only a few have realized the full potential of linking data intelligence with the reinvention of business operations. Those who did are eventually outperforming other companies by unlocking improvement, growth, employee productivity, and risk management. COVID-19 further accelerated the need for organizations to become virtual, digital-centric, agile, and flexible - and to do it all at a lightning-fast speed. Data intelligence can be implemented in different areas of businesses including human resources. It can further embrace HR technology by improving employee experience and performance, recruitment processes, and quickly responding to specific challenges effectively and efficiently. With increased access to information tools and technological power to interpret, HR professionals are now able to work smarter and can have a great influence on their organizations. Here is how data intelligence can make HR leadership more impactful and effective than ever - Boosting Employee Satisfaction The prime key to employee retention is improved employee satisfaction. Once an organization hires the right and deserving person to do the job, it must strive to keep them and avoid a repetitive recruitment process all over again. By analyzing big data on what employees around the world have responded to, organizations can make important decisions regarding the work environment and privileges provided to the workforce. HR leadership is about identifying those key factors that can boost employee satisfaction. Whether it is the generous paid holiday allowances, free meals, or other perks to those on payroll, HR professionals must work on the formula to drive employee satisfaction. Streamlined Recruitment Processes Traditionally, the recruitment process for open positions has always been incredibly time-consuming for HR professionals. But with the help of artificial intelligence and other advanced HR technology, the hiring process can be streamlined and simplified. AI can be used to find suitable internal employees and then cut down the pool of applicants to the most suitable candidates for interviews. The software can even screen resumes for a given key phrase or follow the career path of potential applicants to make hiring efficient. For those organizations which are going through a high volume of applications, data intelligence can be used to identify qualified and deserving applicants. Improved Employee Performance Measurement When we talk about HR management, people analytics is an integral concept that helps HR professionals get an idea of how competently every employee is in carrying out their work. With the help of data on employee interaction with their managers and superiors along with comparison on performance metrics, employees can be rewarded based on their performance results. Such type of recognition and appraisal is also important in maintaining a constant workforce motivation which in turn enhances the productivity of the team. On the other hand, if any employee who is struggling can also be quickly identified and assisted early giving them the right guidance and future opportunities they need. Monitoring Employee Morale Another way to ensure employee retention is by keeping an eye over the overall workforce morale and making sure that it remains high. Today, employers prefer leveraging sophisticated algorithms rather than relying on questionnaires or interviews where the employees may not be completely clear or honest about their work experience and feelings. These algorithms mainly monitor internal emails to analyze the emotions of the employees who wrote them. This helps HR professionals to understand which employees are stressed, annoyed, disappointed, depressed, or happy and enables them to take the right step to motivate or encourage such employees.
