Course: People AnalyticsLink: The Wharton School, University of PennsylvaniaWebsite: https://www.coursera.orgDuration: 4 weeks, 2 hours per weekTotal Learning Hours: Minimum 8 hoursCost: Self-paced, USD49 per monthPeople analytics is a data-driven approach to managing people at work. For the first time in history, business leaders can make decisions about their people based on deep analysis of data rather than the traditional methods of personal relationships, decision making based on experience, and risk avoidance. In this course, three of Wharton’s top professors, all pioneers in the field of people analytics, will explore the state-of-the-art techniques used to recruit and retain great people, and demonstrate how these techniques are used at cutting-edge companies. They’ll explain how data and sophisticated analysis is brought to bear on people-related issues, such as recruiting, performance evaluation, leadership, hiring and promotion, job design, compensation, and collaboration. This course is an introduction to the theory of people analytics and is not intended to prepare learners to perform complex talent management data analysis.
