"Workforce planning technology has advanced to the point where HR managers are in a better position to make more strategic, data-based decisions. We can better predict which employees are at risk of leaving, which employees do we need to develop further, and which workers we may be losing because of pay inequities based on gender or race. Analytics allows you to recognize these critical indicators on which you as an employer need to take action...HR also can use data analytics to improve engagement with employees. HR managers can ask themselves: 'Are we making an effort to see that employees are satisfied with their work? Do workers feel that they are getting feedback on their performance? Do we have them on a career path leading them to their career goals and the organization's success?...By giving employees visibility into their job performance and clear ownership of their responsibilities, accountability has increased and so has trust."
