The analysis of data is not the main crux of analytics. It is the interpretation that helps provide insights after the application of analytical techniques that makes analytics such an important discipline. We have used the most popular analytics software tool which is MS Excel. This will aid the students who have no prior coding background to learn and implement analytics concepts to actually solve real-world HR problems.

Let me give you a brief overview of the course

  • Part 1 - Introduction

    In this section, we will learn about the course structure and the meaning of some key terms associated with HR Analytics.

  • Part 2 - Essential MS Excel formulas and using them to calculate HR metrics

    In this part, we will start with a tutorial on all the popular MS Excel formulas. Then we will see the implementation of these to calculate and automate the HR metrics. We also discuss a separate case study where we use Excel to calculate the average cost of external and internal hiring.

  • Part 3 - Visualization in Excel and HR Dashboarding

    In this part, we will begin with a tutorial on all the popular charts and graphs that can be drawn in MS Excel. Then we will see the implementation of these to create visualize HR data. We also discuss a separate case study where we use Excel to build a department-wise demographic distribution of human resources.

  • Part 4 - Data summarization using Pivot tables

    In this part, we will learn about several advanced topics in MS Excel such as Pivot tables, indirect functions, and also about data formatting. Then we will see the implementation of these to create beautiful summaries of HR Data. We also discuss a separate case study where we use Excel to build a dynamic department wise demographic dashboard and format it to make it presentable.

  • Part 5 - Basics of Machine Learning and Statistics

    In this part, we introduce the students to the basics of statistics and ML. This part is for students who have no background understanding of ML and statistics concepts

  • Part 6 - Preprocessing Data for ML models

    In this section, you will learn what actions you need to take step by step to get the data and then prepare it for analysis these steps are very important. We start with understanding the importance of business knowledge then we will see how to do data exploration. We learn how to do uni-variate analysis and bivariate analysis then we cover topics like outlier treatment, missing value imputation, variable transformation, and correlation.

  • Part 7 - Linear regression model for predicting metrics

    This section starts with a simple linear regression and then covers multiple linear regression.

    We have covered the basic theory behind each concept without getting too mathematical about it so that you understand where the concept is coming from and how it is important. But even if you don't understand it,  it will be okay as long as you learn how to run and interpret the result as taught in the practical lectures.

    We also look discuss an HR case study where we try to predict the CTC to be offered to new recruits basis their previous experience, past CTC, job location, and qualification.

I am pretty confident that the course will give you the necessary knowledge and skills to immediately see practical benefits in your workplace.

Maybe the content of curses is interesting but because of the very poor pronunciation of the tutor is very difficult to understand and to follow

Christina25 December 2020

The content is quite good. However, I saw many typos in the materials. It could be better if there are more examples related to Human Resource.

Neetesh14 December 2020

This training course has gone beyond my expectations. In fact, it has provided me with a comprehensive and in-depth approach to HR analytics, HR metrics and predictive analysis. With their hands-on approach, both authors show you how to create, edit, and develop a wide range of reports and charts. Now, I really have a good idea of how to make the best use out of it at work. At last, this training course has enabled me to develop and expand my skills in Excels. This is definitely a must-do for all HR practitioners willing to master Excel. Thumbs up!
