Trends and Practices in Talent Analytics


by SIOP Administrative Office

New White Paper Published in SHRM-SIOP Collaborative Series

A new white paper geared toward HR professionals is now available on the SIOP website. The paper, part of an effort by SIOP and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), can be found here.

Increasingly, organizations are investing in or upgrading their efforts in talent analytics. Based on 22 interviews with academics, consultants and practitioners at 16 corporations and other talent analytics experts, Trends and Practices in Talent Analytics offers a review of key approaches, competencies and tools. Examples of sophisticated talent analytics projects to address human resource challenges and organizational dynamics are also provided. The authors find that successful talent analytics depends on mandates, structure and operationalization, and responses to obstacles. By classifying talent analytics work into three broad categories—data infrastructure and reporting, advanced analytics, and organizational research—they offer a high-level roadmap for building and growing the talent analytics function.

This white paper is part of an initiative titled “The Science of HR,” created under a collaborative partnership between SIOP and SHRM to develop resources for HR practitioners that will further the use and understanding of evidence-based HR practices. These resources, written by leading researchers and practitioners in the field of I-O psychology and HR, make the science of evidence-based HR practices accessible to SIOP and SHRM members. They are specifically intended to infuse the science of I-O psychology and other HR disciplines into management practices for daily use in the workplace.

SIOP is continuously working to develop materials about topics that will be published and distributed by SHRM to its membership. For a full list of collaborative articles, visit the SHRM-SIOP page here.
