Human resource (HR) analytics continues to attract significant attention from organizations worldwide as the HR profession is being held to a higher standard in terms of data-driven decision making and strategy realization. This paper defines HR analytics based on a thorough review of 71 sources and offers a foreground for understanding the role it plays in strategy formulation and implementation across business. A total of 9 case studies will be integrated throughout the body of the thesis to further contextualize its practicality and impact on US-based firms. The primary objective of this paper is to demonstrate that HR analytics continues to make progression in both the literature and real-life business cases. I recommend that future research address the skills and competencies required for the practice of HR analytics as well as identify the best practices and principles of an effective HR analytics function.
