Human Capital Analytics Roadmap
Developed by the Evolving the Workforce (EWF) Community of Interest
Date Released: April 17, 2017
The federal government collects vast quantities of data on its workers throughout the employee lifecycle, and a major opportunity exists to apply advanced data analytics to enhance its workforce. Examining best practices from industry, academic experts, and government, this paper and roadmap will identify how the U.S. government can leverage cutting-edge statistical computing technology, analytics field expertise and effective HR practices to attract and retain the most talented and mission-ready federal workforce.
The potential of applying fact-based decision-making to workforce planning is vast, including: enhancing performance management programs, increasing diversity, studying and predicting retirements and regretted turnover, and tracking the effectiveness of training systems. Recruiting has always been an art, but now big data brings in elements of hard science. By leveraging best practices and lessons learned in this study, agencies can equip themselves with the skills, build the culture, implement processes, and incorporate the technology to support effective use of talent analytics, which will enable smarter recruiting and management decisions.
