While other departments in an organization deal with profits, sales growth, and strategic planning, Human Resources (HR) is responsible for employee well-being, engagement, and staff motivation.  Even though it may not be immediately obvious, the management of these duties often requires a great deal of measurement and technical skill. Predictive HR Analytics provides a clear and accessible framework to understanding and learning to work with HR analytics at an advanced level, using examples of particular predictive models, such as diversity analysis, predicting turnover, evaluating interventions, and predicting performance.

When dealing with metrics, management information, and analytics, HR practitioners rarely use any advanced statistical techniques or go beyond describing the characteristics of the workforce.  Authors Martin Edwards and Kirsten Edwards explain the business applications of HR predictive models; the ethics and limitations of HR analytics; how to carry out an analysis; predict turnover, performance, recruiting, and selection outcomes; and monitor the impact of interventions.

Review:

"Predictive HR Analytics is a comprehensive and detailed guide for any professional interested in this exciting new field. The book will help you understand what data to analyze, how to interpret and analyze the data, and how different types of models work. Highly recommended for people analytics specialists!"
(Josh Bersin, Industry Analyst, Principal and Founder Bersin by Deloitte)

"Detailed, precise and clearly written, this book isn't just about statistics; it's about the future of HR. Essential reading for everyone in HR."
(Professor Binna Kandola OBE, Business Psychologist Senior Partner and co-founder of Pearn Kandola)

"I'm definitely going to buy a hard copy for myself and my coworkers. Having just started in the field of HR analytics, I've been reading a lot about the considerations. This is the first book I've come across so far that uses SPSS with detailed examples of when to use what methods. This is just what I was looking for-- the HR metrics commonly looked at, the statistics used in that situation, and screenshots of the software."
(Goodreads user)

"Anyone reading and learning from this book and applying its lessons will be a more effective HR professional. It should certainly become compulsory reading for all HRM students."


(David Guest, Professor of Organizational Psychology and HRM King’s College, London)
