Creating the Data Savvy HR Generalist New Grad of Tomorrow: Developing the First HR Metrics/Scorecard/KPI Course for Sheridan College HR Programs
Roger Blaesz, Professor, Sheridan College, Mississauga ON

Roger teaches part-time at Sheridan College in Mississauga, specifically, HR Analytics/Metrics for the HR Program. He, along with the course lead (Michael Pitkanen) are revising/revamping the program to focus mainly on HR Metric Scorecard/Dashboard creation, and creating effective KPIs for analytics that include:

  • Workforce levels (actual vs Budget)
  • Turnover
  • Absenteeism
  • Hiring/Recruiting
  • Employee Engagement
  • Employee Performance
  • Historical Analysis/Forecasting
  • Time Based Analysis

The best metrics tell a compelling story, and this course is designed to enhance the analytic storytelling ability of HR students. The course will be designed where a new HR Metric will be studied each week, with students then looking at a dataset to try and find issues that may be of a concern to an organization. Students will then need to develop a metric, effective KPI and Scorecard for that element. At the end of the course, students will be given a dataset to complete a comprehensive HR Metrics scorecard with meaningful KPIs and explanations that allow for insightful and strategic driven decision making.

Organizations investing in HR analytics to drive decision-making are investing in their most important asset, people. They are maximizing HR's contribution to the organization's bottom line and gaining a competitive advantage over those who do not take the plunge. But they are the select few. Other organizations would like to derive the benefits of HR analytics but don't know where to start or continue their efforts.

INFONEX's HR Analytics 2019 has been designed to provide delegates with all the information they need to understand why the investment of time and money is worthwhile, what's involved in set up and implementation and take initial steps to implement or progress to the next level.

You will learn what is driving HR analytics today, how to get the most from the data you already have, how to build an effective HR Analytics team and the importance of your team to be able to visually communicate important insights. Case studies will demonstrate the role HR analytics can play in hiring, employee engagement, retention and succession planning.
