Abstract

While many organizations use business intelligence and analytics in business functions including Supply Chain, Finance, Accounting and Marketing, they have taken little advantage of this in the Human Resources (HR) management area. Seeing tremendous opportunities in the use of analytics, businesses are taking big measures, such as creating a culture of making critical decisions validated by data driven approaches and hiring analytics professionals in areas that promises high rates of return. Experts continue to emphasize the importance of analytics for HR to transform itself into a more effective resource for the organization. In this paper the authors study the current and the near future states of analytics in Human Resources area. With information collected from leading job search engines, SimplyHired.com and Indeed.com, the authors have modeled trends in hiring analytics professionals in different functional areas of business. The authors compared the HR analytics trend with trends in hiring analytics professionals in Supply Chain, Finance, Accounting and Marketing functions. The extent to which companies are hiring analytics professionals now should be a good indication of analytics adoptions in the future.
