“It is no coincidence that the field of human capital analytics is growing in popularity at a time when organizations are managing up to five generations in the workplace,” writes Vestrics CEO and founder Gene Pease in his book Developing Human Capital: Using Analytics to Plan and Optimize Your Learning and Development Investments.

Pease says that these generational groups—including the three largest representatives in the workforce: Baby boomers (born between 1946 and 1964), generation X (1965 to 1976) and millennials (1977 to 1997), all have different ideas about work and the role that it plays in their lives.

While many baby boomers tended to work long hours in the office and build long careers within one organization or industry, generation X and millennial workers are more likely to prioritize a work-life balance, change jobs multiple times and actively seek opportunities for on-the-job learning and development.

Implementing a strong learning program can be a big competitive advantage for organizations as they look to recruit and retain top talent and ensure that the significant knowledge accumulated by longtime Baby Boom employees is transferred down to subsequent generations.

To this end, many organizations have invested significant resources into their learning and development programs. But how does an organization know if their learning program is effective? That’s where analytics comes in.

According to Pease, analytics can help learning leaders make informed decisions abut how to build their human capital intelligently and effectively. “Investing in people isn’t a new concept, But knowing where those investments are working—and where they aren’t—is the new competitive advantage.”

Pease and the Vestrics team recently joined forces with Stacey Boyle, PhD., of Smarter People Planning and Paul Scott, MA, the Manager of Learning and Development at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center to build an analytics-driven model for UT Southwestern’s Academy for Career Enrichment (ACE) program.

On Tuesday, Dec. 8, Pease, Boyle and Scott will team up with Skillsoft for a live webinar about their experiences creating the ACE program. REGISTER NOW at http://ow.ly/UQHg0.
