HR Analytics: its role to bridge credibility gap of HR professionals in an organization and its impact on employees.
The legitimacy of HR practitioners at workplace has been debated by many authors for many decades. HR practitioners have faced difficulty to live up to the new paradigms of human resource management, and thus have failed to position themselves as a strategic partner in the organisation. This research aims to explore if HR analytics has assisted HR practitioners to legitimise their position as a strategic partner in organizations.
There are various arguments on the detrimental impact of HR analytics on employees, and this study also aims to explore the impact of HR analytics on employees in terms of surveillance, impersonality and motivation.
