What is HR data?

When it comes to HR data, this is practically the information that comes from the profile of an employee. Informations such as the date of birth, the date on employment, or the annual leave summary are part of the workforce analytics. Moreover, the headcount, the number of employees per department or office, absenteeism are practical HR insights that distances HR leaders from the ones that are keen on the best practices vs the laggers that are not considering the power of HR analytics to improve employee performance and employee retention.
