Current ThinkTank Research
The ThinkTank is continually conducting research in HR and people analytics. Usually the research fits into two categories: Milestone Reports and Pulse Studies.
Milestone reports are large projects conducted at scale and to an academic standard. Each milestone report has at least one Academic Lead assigned to the project and takes months to complete. The current Milestone Reports are:
1. How do you successfully build and grow a HR Analytics Function? An industry analysis exploring how different organisations are investing in their functions, and the value those create over time.
2. How can HR professionals make better decisions? A detailed analysis of the way HR professionals are making decisions, and how HR analytics teams can best provide them with the evidence they need.
3. What does HR analytics career paths look like? The report looking at the pathways that lead to analytics, the emerging career paths within the function, and what professionals go on to do next.
4. How are HR Analytics functions answering this year's top 3 questions? A technical approach, exploring how different analytics teams are analysing the same problem in different ways.
The Pulse Reports are smaller bitesize studies which focus on a smaller, more niche topic. They often supplement the Milestone reports but are conducted on a slightly smaller scale and produced more quickly. The current pulse studies are listed below.
