Move from reporting to forecasting
The Gap Inc. Workforce Analytics team looks to continue building analytics capability and data-driven methodologies across the entire HR organization. For certain groups, they hope to focus on more predictive analytics, such as forecasting turnover or proactive assessments of top talent.
Storytelling with data is another area of focus for the Workforce Analytics team. This often involves weaving together disparate pieces of information (both qualitative and quantitative) to provide a comprehensive understanding of organizational talent.
Data visualization techniques are a future topic of interest for training. The need to clearly present trends in charts, infographics, or other formats is critical for driving action and maintaining the interest of the audience.
