The world changes and new digital solutions arise in a fast pace, requiring organizations to adapt fast to these changes and innovations. Consequently, the required skills and knowledge of employees to effectively contribute to the core business of an organization, are also subject to changes. Currently, Human Resource (HR) professionals cannot acquire a sufficient insight into organizations’ human capital in order to align it with the current and future core processes of the organization. To acquire the necessary insights and knowledge, organizations see great potential in harnessing the wealth of data about their human capital and core processes. Hence, organizations have a great interest in HR Analytics, which is a rising field on the intersection of HR and big data. Despite the interest, there are only few efforts that focus on HR Analytics and its implementations. In this paper, we analyze the characteristics of the current HR function, present a framework that systematically exploits HR data in order to improve the HR function, and describe our implementation of parts of the presented framework. As such, our framework and its implementations can be regarded as a first step towards conducting HR Analytics in practice.
