From December 2020 the HR Analytics ThinkTank will allow any university in the world to get full access to our exclusive content for their active students. The ThinkTank library includes reports, webinars, and blog posts from HR analytics industry leaders and academics. We ask the HR lecturers or program directors to please complete this form to get access for your students!
From the first time we shared our analysis of HR analytics functions in 2015, the HR Analytics ThinkTank has strived to produce content supported by evidence and a drive to share the insights with our community to enhance industry learning. Could we answer questions about how HR leaders build analytics functions? Could we answer these questions using a common language to enable actions? Could we provide free content and evidence to accelerate the adoptions evidence-based decision-making by HR and organisations?
Since then the ThinkTank has evolved significantly whilst staying true to these goals. We aim to produce empirical evidence that supports organisations to build HR analytics functions more quickly, help professionals develop their careers, and provide a platform to share HR analytics journeys and projects. To do this, we have formed academic partnerships to ensure the highest level of quality to our research. To bridge the academic/practice gap, we have a board of industry leaders to ensure that research is always industry-relevant and practical. The ThinkTank uses our brand and resources to promote micro HR analytics communities around the world and to share our research insights from our global community.
Our current project on HR analytics careers highlights to me the importance of this global network, and also how important it is to share these insights with the next generation of up and coming HR analytics and HR professionals. It is my pleasure to announce that the ThinkTank will do its part to support the development of the next generation by opening up the community’s resource to current HR students (or those interested in a career in HR analytics from other subject areas).
The ThinkTank is committed to the future and wants to support the adoption and use of analytics and evidence-based decision-making by HR. With the fast pace of change in the industry, we hope that we can enhance university programs with the latest industry insights and research for their students.
