It’s no secret that people analytics capabilities are becoming more important for HR professionals—82% of HCI survey respondents agree. Yet HR practitioners still struggle with using people and organizational data to make better talent management decisions.
HCI’s People Analytics for HR (PAHR) Certification program is designed for HR professionals just like you. We want to help you develop the analytical mindset and skill set necessary to help make talent management decisions that drive business success. Additionally, you’ll be able to increase your influence and impact with stakeholders as you bring more rigor and discipline to your talent recommendations.
HR analytics is listed as a skill on professional profiles 61% more often than just one year ago, according to recent research from LinkedIn. Now is the time to add the PAHR certification to your profile, too.
