Another reminder that only by analysing internal and external data can an HR organisation truly manage effectively.

How many HR departments collect and analyse unstructured text data- those little free form boxes where employees tell the real truth in exit interviews?  " I just could not get on with my supervisor/manager/director VP whose people skills are sadly lacking"

It's too late then, of course, but big data analytics could anticipate that situation before ever the exit interviews happen.

And the biggest reason people leave organisations? Poor supervisors, managers, directors, VPs, CEOs. So best to know before it is too late
