Analytics in Human Resources functions has its own benefits and drawbacks. This McKinsey take on Why you should apply analytics to your people strategy covers many of them.

the best tools [for recruitment] are not being used

We’ve grown five generations of manager who “know it when they see it” and they’re wrong,  of course

On the flip side we’ve devalued and eviscerated the HR function

We have to understand the science behind talent
