At data-driven organizations, getting initial buy-in and support for talent analytics projects is easy because the business already understands and respects the power of data. At most organizations, however, the nascent talent analytics team will face an uphill battle to gain the mindshare of most leaders. In this HCI Keynote video, Buddy Benge of Monsanto discusses his journey to build a respected, sought after, talent analytics function in a complex organization where most business and HR leaders had little prior experience using data in their work.
- Using informal “road shows” to build relationships with HR, explain talent analytics, and identify challenges.
- Creating an HR analytics council to build and sustain a culture of analytics.
- Analyzing unstructured data from resumes and cover letters to predict candidate performance.
- Integrating and standardizing disparate surveys to build a bigger, more useful source of employee data.
