HR Business Partners as a success factor for the development of a data- and evidence-based corporate culture

People analytics plays a crucial role in transforming HR towards a data- and evidence-based function that can clearly demonstrate and communicate the value it creates for the business. However, analyzing data alone is not sufficient to add value to the organization. Rather, it requires the development of an appropriate mindset and corporate culture.

HR Business Partners can play a key role in this regard. They can be the first point of contact for people analytics teams to help identify business-related issues and questions. Additionally, HR business partners also play a key role in sharing and implementing findings from people analytics projects within the organization.
