Such concerns do not immediately conjure up images of analytical know-how, despite the fact that in reality the management of such things often requires a lot of measurement and technical skill. Predictive HR Analytics provides a clear, accessible framework with which to understand and work with HR analytics at an advanced level, taking HR professionals through examples of particular predictive models so they can develop effective HR strategies based on evidence. Predictive HR Analytics will show step-by-step, using simple terms, how to carry out analysis (using the statistical package SPSS) and interpret the results, helping to communicate the potential of HR analytics and get the most out of the HR function, whether carrying out the analysis or briefing external consultants.

Review Text

"This is a good introduction to an increasingly important topic for HR professionals. It is clearly laid out and is presented with a good mix of text and visuals in the form of screen shots, tables and diagrams....Of the various books explaining quantitative data analysis that I have read, this one is the easiest to follow and the most directly related to practical HR analytics....This is an excellent book which I would unreservedly recommend to both HR professionals and students."show more
