One of the overlooked side benefits of building internal analytics capability is recruiting talent.
Universities are rapidly creating new analytics courses and programs because top students and future business leaders are demanding it. And, these students are eager to take their skills to companies that are doing interesting work in analytics.
If your organization is not seriously building analytics capability, you are missing out on these students.
We’ve seen many companies that are not embracing analytics despite the fact that they are sitting on un-analyzed data. I recently wrote an article for Supply Chain Digest on how the supply chain industry could attract more talent by seriously embracing analytics.
We’ve seen many other companies that should embrace analytics to take advantage of the data they have– and by doing this, companies may find they are can recruit from a much wider talent pool.
