Power to the new people analytics | McKinsey & Company - 1 views

  •  
    McKinsey have developed an approach to retention: to detect previously unobserved behavioural patterns, they combine various data sources with machine-learning algorithms. Workshops and interviews are used to generate ideas and a set of hypotheses. Over time they collected hundreds of data points to test. Then ran different algorithms to get insights at a broad organisational level, to identify specific employee clusters, and to make individual predictions. Finally they held a series of workshops and focus groups to validate the insights from our models and to develop a series of concrete interventions. The insights were surprising and at times counterintuitive. They expected factors such as an individual's performance rating or compensation to be the top predictors of unwanted attrition. But analysis revealed that a lack of mentoring and coaching and of "affiliation" with people who have similar interests were actually top of list. More specifically, "flight risk" across the firm fell by 20 to 40 percent when coaching and mentoring were deemed satisfying.
