Are you a fit for a Workforce Analytics PurePlay? [5 Minute Friday]

Full disclosure: we're cheating a little bit this week and our 5 Minute Friday is a bit longer. In fact, we've stretched it by 15 minutes. Yesterday our co-founders Steve Johnson and John Pensom, hosted a short webinar to explore the Workforce Analytics PurePlay and provided 7 questions to ask yourself to see if you/your company is a fit for this approach to HR analytics and reporting.  
 

We've summarized the key points (consumable in 5 minutes) in a short slide deck, but if you're interested in the full story, you can watch the online conversation here, on your own time.
In both the video and the slide deck:

1) we quickly review what we see as the current state in much of HR.

  • That HR has lots of data but it’s locked away in disparate, transactional systems.  Integration of HR, Talent and Business data is very hard, and cross HR reporting & analytics is even harder.  
  • These activities are time-consuming and labor-intensive, and they still don’t produce the level of business insight required.  This is pretty much a universal problem in HR, and especially in the mid-market.

2) then we move on to explore 

  • what this newest category of HR tech is/does – the Workforce Analytics PurePlay – focused exclusively on resolving the issue of disconnected data and hard-to-get reporting, by taking on the heavy-lifting and technical aspects of data integration.
  • why many, in the mid-market are opting to partner with a Workforce Analytics PurePlay to free their smart, savvy HR people from spreadsheets and enable them to focus on the tasks of analyzing, reporting and problem solving.
  • a behind-the-scenes look at a Workforce Analytics PurePlay [PeopleInsight] to see how this category works and how simple and powerful it can be. (platform, benefits, timing, pricing, etc.)
  • and the 7 questions you can ask yourself to assess whether you/your company are a fit for a Workforce Analytics PurePlay.
