Talent analytics represent a tremendous opportunity for organizations to better understand their current state, predict their future talent needs and better measure and therefore improve their progress toward these goals. Two major challenges seem to stand in the way of delivering on this promise: A lack of technology, and a lack of analytical skills.
New technology can be a challenge for firms of any size. The investment required to implement a new solution and either integrate or replace the legacy system can be very costly. Another challenge is weighing the decision about whether to outsource or develop the analytical skills necessary to collect, maintain, and analyze the data a solution creates. Organizations can certainly have either technology OR analytical skills, but need both to be effective and make an impact. This session will outline the various technology platforms available for any size company and models for upskilling that are suited to fit various developmental needs.
