Course Description

People Analytics is an emerging field that uses data to attract, retain, and develop talent, so leaders can make personnel decisions based on evidence, rather than instincts or politics.

In this course, Prasad Setty, head of People Analytics at Google, offers a behind-the-scenes look at how Google conducts groundbreaking research to distill the characteristics of the most effective teams and managers.

By the end of this course, you’ll have started establishing a data-powered, performance-driven culture for your own enterprise, and learned to incorporate data into your own human resource decisions—even if you’re a social entrepreneur starting at a much smaller and scrappier scale.
