In the fast pace of globalised businesses, talent questions are key to strategy - getting the right person at the right place and time. Leaders need to have the means to quantify talent questions, and this demand (coupled with the growing availability of data) has resulted in many leading organisations creating People Analytics or Talent Analytics departments. Most major consultancies and emerging niche players have also begun offering People Analytics services.

However, there is as yet no industry standard regarding the operations of people analytics functions or the measurement of return that such projects can deliver. Most importantly, a measure of functional and professional maturity is missing - how should such a team be organised, what hard and soft skills do they require, and how does People Analytics interface with other aspects of organisational strategy.

We conducted research in this area over the course of several years in cooperation with top companies, and identified best practices over various industries.


8-week Online Programme

In collaboration with Emeritus Institute of Management, we have developed a comprehensive 8-week online programme in People Analytics.

The programme runs several times a year and combines pre-recorded faculty presentations with guest speaker interviews, live webinars, Q&A sessions, workbook assignments, quizzes and more to help support your learning journey. Peter Romero and Luning Sun are the programme faculty.

Small group seminars

In addition to our open enrolment online programmes, we have delivered in-person seminars informed by our people analytics research. Our 5-day academy courses get into the detail of the data science techniques involved in working with HR Information Systems data, whereas the 2-day strategic focus session invites executives to engage with the main strategic issues in a structured manner.
