People data and analytics can help HR and others working in people management to solve business problems and make decisions. However, many people professionals lack both the confidence and analytical skills to make the most of their workforce data. Effective HR decision-making also needs to be based on the best available evidence. Here we provide information on people data capture, measurement and analysis, benchmarking and reporting, and the importance of evidence-based practice.
