HR Analytics Essentials You Always Wanted to Know by Dr. Michael J. Walsh is an intellectually fascinating blend of instruction, theory, and illustrative samples. Human Resource professionals like myself are deeply rooted in the modern-day blend of people-centric practices supported by analytical data. This guidebook expertly walks readers through the more foundational principles of the analytical process and is packed with HR-specific conditions and steadily deepens the discussion from foundational to more advanced topics. Individuals with a basic background in statistics will quickly absorb the contents and those with experience in HR will easily identify opportunities for utilization. This book could also pique the interest of Organizational Change Management professionals and anyone interested in organizational strategy. My personal favorite chapter was on job analysis.
Dr. Michael J. Walsh clearly understands his audience and steadily walks the reader through familiar terminology, grasping the goals of modern HR professionals to add quantifiable contributions to their organizations. The content is delivered concisely and flows through the various concepts presented with ease.

This guidebook will have HR practitioners itching to get started, and ready to dive into the various scenarios.
