Course Objectives

An organization is only as good as the people who work for it. This course will focus on how to measure and improve the Human capital of an organization. Specifically, it will focus on using analytic techniques to support

  • Attracting and recruiting the best staff
  • Retaining key people
  • Determining how to improve people’s engagement with and commitment to the organization

Analytic techniques will be used to assess how people have actually performed in the organization and relate this to attributes that can be measured and in many cases controlled. This two-day course will introduce techniques that enable HR staff to understand company staff performance in the present and be able to predict their future performance.
