Hr challenge: evidence-based decision making

Create a 3-4 page overview report for the benefit of new HR hires on the importance and value of evidence-based decision making.

As an HR generalist, manager, or director, your role will be to use and interpret data and add your expertise to make sound recommendations to the leadership of the organization. As with any new role, taking on the role of a strategic business partner requires the acquisition of new skills. In the case of HR professionals, these skills are mainly in the area of measuring the impact of what they do in the organization. It is not sufficient to merely know of all the traditional HR skills (such as staffing, training, compensation, benefits, labor relations, employee relations, or safety). Today’s HR professional must develop the ability to consult and provide critical evaluation based on evidence. The first step in evidence-based decision making is collecting the data needed to make these decisions.
