Last week saw Experian shortlisted for not one, but two HR distinction awards

The categories shortlisted were:

  • Organisational strategy and HR innovation
  • Innovation through technology

Both nominations are for the work Experian has done internally and externally with our latest HR solution – Experian Workforce Analytics for Retention.

People at Experian are one of our most important assets and as industry leaders, we needed a way to ensure we were keeping the talent that drives us.

Experian is focused on unlocking the power of data in every aspect of what we do. So, when faced with the challenge of delivering growth through retention of top talent, we naturally turned to analytics to help accelerate our own HR strategy.

We wanted to create a model clever enough to interpret our people data and transform it in to meaningful insight. This is exactly what we did and with hugely successful results. So much so that we’ve developed this technology to create opportunities for other organisations with similar challenges.

Talking about the nominations, Olly Britnell, Head of Global Workforce Analytics and HR Strategy at Experian commented “It’s fantastic news to have been nominated for both the organisational strategy and HR innovation and the innovation through technology awards. It’s real testament to the team for all their hard work in developing such an innovative model at a time where strategy and innovation within HR is proving to be a real journey to success. We look forward to the awards ceremony on the 2nd May and hearing about the great work taking place across the industry.”

What is workforce analytics?

Workforce analytics is a form of advanced data analysis used for workforce measurement and improvement. It allows organisations to gain insight in to the workforce on a large scale, at speed.  Workforce analytics, also known as people analytics, HR analytics or talent analytics, analyses data inputs to produce insight that can help managers and HR professionals make evidenced based, proactive decisions about their employees or workforce.  The use of predictive analytics takes it that one step further through the practice of extracting information from existing data and analytics to determine patterns and predict future outcomes.

Workforce Analytics for Retention: our latest innovative solution for HR functions to secure better, more productive futures for their people and organisation.

This model, built by our experts, is now available as a solution to help more businesses understand the levers to retain and develop their workforces more effectively.

The HR Distinction Awards will be hosted in the world-famous Grosvenor Hotel in London on the 2nd May 2019.
