Why the need for human resources metrics?
The field of Human Resources (HR) has and continues to develop into a technology-based profession. However, amidst the technology and data revolution, HR professionals often still rely on instinct and experience to inform strategic decision making.
Fact-based decision-making in HR is now more important than ever. The field now commonly known as Workforce Analytics is one of the fastest growing areas in the professional domain today.
Why an Africa only report?
To support internal evidence-based decision-making, organisations often rely on benchmark data, but benchmark data in HR is hard to come by, especially across Africa. Organisations rely on benchmark data that are not applicable to the unique Africa work circumstances or is clouded by global benchmarks. It is out of this need that this inaugural survey was born.
