Making data-driven decisions is important; analytics and metrics can help you understand where you’re improving – or not improving, how you compare to others in your industry, and more. Some metrics that are often important for HR professionals are employee turnover rate, time to hire, benefits participation rate, diversity, and employee satisfaction.
Different metrics are important for different HR professionals, though, so it’s important to know what’s the most helpful to you and what the areas of concern are for your organization. It may change over time, so keep checking in on what those key issues are.
You should also dig into the results of your metrics tracking; try to find reasons behind the numbers and how that information can be applied to take your organization to the next level. Be sure to use data to check progress on your goals, as well.
