The Opportunity

As with many areas within an organization, analytical skills are becoming a crucial job requirement in Human Resources (HR) departments and human resources consultants. However, HR departments are not realizing the full value that analytics can deliver for them in human capital management because those working with the data do not understand the underlying business of HR. To solve this, many organizations rely upon quantitative professionals from outside the HR field to support their needs. Those who understand both the business of HR and know how to analyze and visualize data to inform recommendations and decisions can establish a career path that will be in high demand for the 21st-century organization.

Program Benefits

Get a head start on the skills that are becoming increasingly important – and soon to be required – in the field of human resources. As the area becomes more reliant on data analysis to make decisions, this course, led by your personal learning coach, will begin to help you overcome any prior concerns you have working with quantitative tools and anxiety you may have dealing with numbers or mathematics. You will learn fundamental concepts of using workforce data to create value for your organization. The addition of these analytical skills to your portfolio will increase your value on your current team, position you to become the “go-to” thought leader on HR analytics in your organization, or provide additional service in your HR consulting practice.

With the guidance of your Rutgers Personal Learning Coach, you will have the confidence and knowledge to make significant contributions to this critical, strategic function at your current employer or prospective employer.
