Employee management systems designed to collect activity data on the company’s personnel should be a priority for any company’s HR department, an expert in the human resources management field has argued.

University of London research fellow Max Blumberg recently commented in an interview that simply collecting data without using it to improve the personnel’s efficiency is a drain on HR department’s resources.

He also suggested that the concept of “big data” and employee analytics should be tightly tied in with specific business needs, in order to become a justifiable expense.

“If your house has dots on the wall you can count them all and tell your friends, but it doesn’t achieve anything,” he said. “But if your house has a problem like subsidence and you’re looking to fix it, collecting data suddenly becomes very valuable.”

Organizations that take the HR function very seriously and are looking at implementing a solid and reliable technological solution designed to improve these departments’ overall efficiency could benefit from Tensor’s extensive experience in this segment.
