I have been reading about Jigsaw Academy's new HR Analytics Training Course, which starts soon (January 26, 2014). HR Analytics is a remarkably interesting new field -- or, one could say, an old field with exciting new dimensions! The application of data science techniques to human resource management is truly making a science out of one of the most important (if not, the most important) part of your business -- the people! Several studies and articles have discussed this topic in the past 2 years, including:
The field was given a detailed blueprint in a visionary book from 2010: "The New HR Analytics: Predicting the Economic Value of Your Company..." (by Jac Fitz-enz), which truly focused on HR Analytics as a data science, with metrics and models as the cornerstones of the book.
The rapid maturity in this field is now seen in the emergence of HR Analytics training programs. One of the best opportunities for such training comes from well known Data Science and Analytics Training provider, Jigsaw Academy, who offers a nice variety of other courses for Big Data and Data Science practitioners: Financial Analytics, Retail Analytics, Analytics with R, Data Scientist Certification, and Business Analytics (the latter offered jointly with Great Lakes Institute of Management).
You can preview the plans and content for Jigsaw's new HR Analytics Certification course by examining their Course Brochure [PDF]. Additional information was provided earlier this month by Jigsaw.
Here are 10 attributes of this program that make it worth considering:
