Last HR Tech World (now UNLEASH), we interviewed some of the leading experts in the field of people analytics. One of the questions we asked was: How will data capturing evolve in people analytics?

This is the first piece of a four-part video series. In this series, we spoke to different experts, including David Green, Luc Smeyers, Jouko van Aggelen and Tom Haak.

How will data capturing evolve in people analytics?

According to Jouko, data capturing at the beginning of the employee lifecycle is common and usually of decent quality. However, the further down the employee journey we go, the messier the data.

Laura notes that organizations are poor at capturing employee data – and I agree with her. By mapping the employee lifecycle and attaching different data capturing points along the way we will be very effective at capturing data.

According to Luk, this creates a lot more opportunities. In addition, he sees HR technology as a great way to support this data capture effort.

This is what they said when I asked them the question at UNLEASH.

    Though I agree with most of the points, I can’t help but think about the huge historical investments organizations have already made in data capturing and transactional processing of the employee life cycle. I can hear the CFO say “Oh look another shinny thing….”. Nevertheless, I would claim, most of an organizations’ existing data is still untapped when considering its analytics potential. Yes, the amount of data captured continues to grow exponentially; however, our utilization of the historical treasure trove is still in its infancy. The heavy lifting will be in data mining, analyzing and presenting of the golden nuggets in order to make an impact.
