What’s the data hype all about, anyway?

Data are the new petroleum. The most valuable companies in the world deal in data. Why are data so valuable? Because they can provide insights that enable companies to make better decisions. Algorithms can scan large amounts of data for patterns that are not accessible to human intuition. These patterns may be used to derive predictions which in turn may lead to profitable decisions in the company.

Why use data analysis in HR?

One of the most decisive factors for a company’s long-term success is the interplay between employees and the organizational environment. By intelligently combining employee data with data from other business areas, it is possible to discover previously unknown interconnections as well as new ways of influencing them.


Sports has led the way: baseball, basketball and football are pioneers of the data revolution. Movements on the playing field are systematically recorded and measured, algorithms are changing the understanding of the game, data based scouting is changing the way teams are put together.

„Instead of feelings, we now have facts.“

Glen Riddershol, Danish football coach

Luck and misfortune can be calculated. Books and movies such as “Moneyball“ by Michael Lewis have long become classics.

Humans are biased – be more objective

The central belief of digitalized sport is that statistically generated performance indicators are more objective and reliable than the subjective opinions of players, coaches, managers and scouts.

Can you afford NOT to use data analysis?

Human judgement is prone to error – this is as true in sports as it is in the realm of business. Studies have shown that statistical regression models are generally better than experts at predicting future outcomes. Yet, although in many companies staff related costs are the biggest cost factor, important HR related tasks such as employee selection have traditionally been based mainly on expert assessments.


This means that there is an enormous potential for saving costs and raising profits through the use of data analyses in HR. Read on about how prestada can help you leverage that potential.
