Federal Workforce Analytics -- Time to Simplify and Reap the Rewards of Your Data
“Above all else, show the data.”
The quote from Edward R. Tufte, statistician, rings true for today’s federal agencies, as they look to improve workforce performance, justify budgets and manage their workforces more efficiently.
The good news is that there is an enormous amount of data available to federal HR leaders and decision makers. However, the challenging flip side is that many agencies are ill-equipped to exploit the data that is literally at their fingertips.
As stated in a recent Government Executive article, Why Government Needs to Invest in Workforce Metrics, “the right metrics can deliver enormous value.” Federal agencies can glean insight from the wide range of people analytics available to them through dashboards and reports that can be geared toward executive leadership as well as operational staff.
With the right approach to analyzing data and with the expertise to create useful and insightful dashboards and reports, federal HR leaders can learn to take advantage of the data they have access to . From employee engagement to workforce performance to workforce planning, executives can make better decisions in a more timely manner — ultimately helping them more prepared to lead their agencies to achieve their missions.
With the right tools to utilize the data, HR and civil rights leaders can improve their management of their agencies and workforces. Unfortunately, many agencies don’t possess the expertise, resources or both to implement data-driven decision making.
