What is Talent Analytics and what does it mean for you?

Talent Analytics for Effective Talent ManagementEmployee data offers a huge source of insight to organisations. In the current technology-driven business environment, an analytical approach to this data is critical to HR’s success. The results can be used to help predict the potential and performance of employees, enhance talent strategy, support diversity and more.

Our data-driven, evidence-based approach and psychological expertise ensure that we can convert raw data into actionable people strategy.  This approach is made possible through the use of our online platform, Apollo, which allows the systematic collection and analysis of data from reliable and valid assessments.

We’ve long been dedicated to helping our clients align their business strategy with their people strategy, and the evidence Apollo generates facilitates this alignment in a very powerful way – when combined with the experience and expertise of our occupational psychologists, you’ll be able to put evidence-based action plans in place that you know will get results.

Talent Analytics made simple

Mercer recently reported that organisations have “put investments in technology ahead of HR skill development – making it challenging to capture the value of their system implementations.”  The CIPD add that “it’s clear that many organisations overlook HR’s biggest source of informed analytical insight, namely behavioural scientists. Psychologists with occupational and business backgrounds, as well as those coming from an experimental background, have an affinity with measurement statistics and data.”

So, while technology is clearly the key to capturing talent data, you’ll only be able to maximise the value of it through detailed analysis undertaken by skilled psychologists.

Here at a&dc we’ve been collecting and analysing data relating to assessment and development since day one – it’s at the core of everything we do.  Our highly skilled occupational psychologists can help you to make sense of your data, wherever it’s collected and held, creating sophisticated algorithms that will answer your challenging business questions.  These algorithms can be embedded within the Apollo platform to enhance future prediction and the results provide powerful metrics that can really make a difference to your business.
