HR is lagging behind marketing and advertising with at least half a century.
Over a century ago, John Wanamaker famously said: “Half the money I spend on advertising is wasted; the trouble is I don’t know which half.”
Today, due to insights and analytics, advertisers can work in a data-driven way, providing proof for the results they’re achieving for their customers.
HR departments in many companies struggle with providing even the most fundamental insights and analytics.
If we want to work more efficiently, both financially and from an employee engagement point of view, this has to change, now.
