Rather than an auto-generated prediction of what may happen against a specific question, Workday People Analytics provides a narrative to guide executives where to focus across a broad domain—whether that be a specific team, location, customer, or product line. It uses machine learning to predict and surface what’s truly important. Put another way, Workday People Analytics tells you what you need to know.
For example, a people leader might receive a message that shows new hire turnover has increased overall, and that not only should they look at the sales organization in London, but also dig into compensation, as well as a specific hiring manager. The application helps leaders focus on the most important issues impacting their business, and answer high-value questions like:
- What are the bottlenecks of the hiring process?
- What are the top five trends in the organization’s diversity? How are we evolving as a community?
- Which pockets of excellence can the whole organization learn from?
- Where do we see unusually high attrition? What are the drivers behind it?
As a result, information load is reduced by a factor of 1,000—you’ll see what matters most so you can make the best decisions in the least possible time. The organization acts, innovates, and learns faster, creating a virtuous cycle.
