The future of HR is data-driven. Need numbers to back that up? In one survey, more than 75 percent of survey respondents believed analytics would either make a substantial impact or be “revolutionary” for their organizations in the coming years. According to a Bersin by Deloitte study, data-driven HR teams are four times more likely to be respected by colleagues. At public companies that invest in people analytics, stock market returns are 30 percent higher.

The data doesn’t lie. So while the profession’s focus on data isn’t going anywhere, it’s definitely evolving; traditional HR metrics like turnover and retention aren’t cutting it anymore. In their place are new, cutting-edge metrics like quality of hire, career path ratio, and range penetration.
