    Regardless of the size of your organization, HR metrics and workforce analytics are becoming increasingly beneficial. With the transition of HR metrics and analytics over the past 30 years, managers are now finding it easier to balance the costs and benefits of decisions due to improved HR infrastructures.  However, HR metrics and workforce analytics are not a guarantee return on investment. You need to be able to decipher what data is appropriate to collect. Learn how to use this information to increase managerial decision-making efficiency. This program will help you align workforce and HR metrics with HR objectives, business strategies, and organizational goals. It will also teach you how to implement HR metrics and workforce analytics to improve organizational results.
