How Analytics Can Help You Succeed
Success can mean different things to different organizations. But there are some basic ways that any organization can benefit from the use of analytics. Here are two:
Make better decisions more quickly.
Analytics give you a better framework for making decisions by highlighting trends you can use to improve outcomes. A regular check of the data allows you to develop benchmarks and compare results when you make strategic changes. For example, the data may show that personnel hired for a particular role are consistently leaving your company after only a short tenure. Identifying this issue might lead you to improve your onboarding process for that position.
Analytics can also be used to identify areas of your business that need improvement and arm you with the data you need to address issues rather than having to rely on “gut feeling.”
Communicate more effectively and transparently
Analytics can help to create a language for your organization that allows you to communicate more effectively across departments and roles. Having access to accurate information opens up discussions and allows employees to feel more confident about asking questions, improving employee engagement. And managers can use that information to define success for individual roles and set clear expectations as to how that success will be measured.
As you’re developing or refining your analytics strategy, it’s important to keep three things in mind:
The answers you get will only be as good as the questions you ask.You will reap the greatest benefits of analytics in a collaborative environment.Quality analytics are the result of quality data.
