People Analytics

What’s so important about people analytics?

Data. It surrounds us and gives greater insight into everything we do.

Data is being embraced by departments around the world to improve performance, yet few HR departments have been fortunate enough to see how embracing data will improve their performance to give their organisation a powerful competitive edge.

With HR departments responsible for one of the largest overheads in an organisation, people’s salaries, it is crucial that money is being spent as efficiently as possible. By using your people data it’s possible to work to the greatest efficiency.

Your Data Journey - the power to understand your people

Using your data is not all about saving money, people analytics can hugely increase the potential of your people, and the growth of your organisation.

To help you untangle your HR and people data MHR have created a data journey for you to follow.

Follow the data journey to truly understand your people, level up your HR department and harness the power of your people! Discover where your journey begins below.

Intelligent Reporting

Depending on your analytical experience, how soon you want to start reporting and the level of customisation you need, we have a choice of reporting solutions.

Choose from either fast-track reporting (our out-of-the-box solution), or bespoke reporting; the solution that allows you to tailor any reporting solution you may need. Each option will help you to understand your people data. Here’s a snippet of what the two solutions involve:

Fast-track: Analyse the basics such as salaries, employee numbers and absences. Perform structural breakdowns and assess the impact of changes to your workforce caused by new legislation like the gender pay gap reporting or living wage rises. All the hard work is done for you so you can start reporting right away and immediately see your data patterns from day one.

Bespoke: Create personalised reports, from ad hoc queries to sophisticated managed reporting, to get deeper into your organisation’s individual requirements. Whether you’ve got an in-house data specialist or not, MHR experts can help provide the training you need to control your own analytics future.

Having a growing organisation brings the challenge of managing large amounts of data, which can easily leave day-to-day operations spent sifting through spreadsheets.

Not only does this take up precious time, but it also hinders your ability to effectively interpret your data and make informed decisions — ultimately affecting business performance and limiting your future growth.

Ditch manual spreadsheets and start automating your business planning. Quickly align your financial plans, corporate objectives, organisational changes, employee levels and salary plans – all whilst feeling familiar and intuitive thanks to its ability to be used within Excel.
