Best answer

An engaged workforce is critical to attracting and engaging talent. The challenge is determining which factors will result in revenue for the company. This makes employee engagement a very difficult metric to quantify and take action on.

How can People analytics help with employee engagement?

  • Statistical analysis of employee engagement survey data
  • Discriminant analysis to identify the needs of different segments within the organization
  • Factor analysis to correlate engagement initiatives with retention and productivity
  • Inform testing of new ideas to measure lift in engagement

Google is a perfect case study in how people analytics can be used to increase employee engagement. They’re one of the most data-driven cultures in the world. Its People Operations team utilizes a mix of quantitative and qualitative data to measure what employees value most and to keep them engaged.

They discovered, through a combination of employee surveys and productivity analytics, that great managers tend to have the following qualities:

  1. Coaching skills
  2. Does not micromanage
  3. Is genuinely concerned for well-being of employees and expresses this
  4. Results-oriented
  5. Excellent communicator (listens and shares)
  6. Develops employees
  7. Clear vision and strategy for team
  8. Possesses key technical skills to help guide team
