Agility through workforce analytics

Putting the possible into practice


Posted by Erica Volini on February 29, 2016

Analytics capability is a top human capital trend. Two of the 10 trends in Deloitte’s Global Human Capital Trends 2015 report directly focused on analytics, and as we prepare to launch the 2016 report in the next couple of weeks, I can tell you that analytics will remain a top trend.
