HR Skills™: Interpreting Data


Professionals in all areas of an organization turn to data to aid in their decision-making process, and human resource managers are no exception. By including data in your decision-making process, you can remove some of the guesswork that comes from relying solely on instincts and experience.

This course focuses on what happens after analyzing the data. You will learn about the methods for extracting insights from different types of data. You will also learn tips on how to use data to develop a strategic plan and present your findings to relevant stakeholders. Through practice, you will develop your data interpretation skills and become a more effective HR professional.
