Data can often seem an abstract concept that’s far removed from increasing your employees’ satisfaction. But at DHL Supply Chain we believe that data has a central role to play in nurturing happier, more productive employees who – at a time of severe talent shortages – are less likely to move on and sufficiently skilled to take the next step up in their careers.
As the world moves, tentatively but steadily, into the post-pandemic era, HR teams worldwide can leverage the enormous push for accelerating digitalization and focus on shaping the future. And for most forward-thinking large businesses, that future will be heavily informed by data. In fact, if working with data – collecting, collating, analyzing and leveraging it – isn’t a priority for your HR department, your organization is likely to lose ground to competitors over the coming years. Because, when it comes to defining and achieving your strategic goals, data is an essential, invaluable tool.
