Human resource is an integral part of the organisation. It helps in recruiting, assigning roles, keeping track of employee records, assigning salary, appraisal, coordinating teams, skill enhancement, and retention of employees.

  • Recruitment drives
  • Work record of the employee
  • Promotion details
  • Skill enhancement drives
  • Retaining employees

“In many organisations, employees leave in their early tenure; this affects the company’s growth and performance. To save extra recruitment costs and keep a check on the organisational change, the organisation uses data analytics to analyse the on-board experience, employee survey data, attributes of existing employees, and reasons for leaving.”

These data help create a progressive work environment, improve the human resource software and, above all, save cost and time in formulating an HR plan. These data shape a company’s HR analytics, which works on the different modules with the help of machine learning and AI-based software that tracks the records and helps create reports, visualise tools, and create a dashboard for the alignment and tracking of the work record.
