From HR to HR Analytics in a few Months

You are here:

In the face of constant technological developments, investing time and energy in your digital skill set is essential to continued success in the field of HR. But as Trung Nguyen demonstrates, committing to life-long learning and focusing on in-demand skills can also open up a host of exciting new opportunities.

Diving deeper into HR Analytics

Trung has worked in HR for almost 10 years. Over the course of his career, he has held a variety of positions (including HR consultant and HR innovation officer) for companies like Korn Ferry Hay Group, McKinsey & Co, and Nike. It was when he started working as a talent analytics specialist at Nike that he decided to enroll at AIHR.

His new role required in-depth knowledge of HR Analytics. Trung has always been committed to life-long learning so instead of enrolling in a single course or certification program, he chose the All-You-Can-Learn license, giving him access to all AIHR courses.

In-depth analyses and visualizations

Within the first few months, Trung completed the HR Analytics Leader, Global Data Integrity and Natural Language Processing courses. With his new knowledge and skills, Trung was able to conduct in-depth analyses and create powerful data visualizations for various talent populations in EMEA.

And it wasn’t long before he landed his next job: talent analyst manager for Danone Group at their Paris headquarters.

Practical and theoretical knowledge

Within the decent amount of time I spent pursuing these courses, I gained both a solid theoretical foundation and practical knowledge of HR Analytics,” says Trung. “Even though I was relatively new to this exciting field, after completing the courses I felt substantially more confident discussing HR Analytics and the benefits it brings to the organization — as well as actually taking my organization on a journey toward building a strong analytics capability.”

So what was it about AIHR that worked so well for Trung? “What I particularly like about these courses is the practical knowledge and teaching method of the instructors, and the helpful reading and resources, all of which make the course very thought-provoking.”

“I would recommend these courses to anyone who wishes to advance in HR Analytics.”

Continuing his learning journey

Trung is never done learning. Given the heightened strategic nature of his new role at Danone, where he will analytically empower the Group in managing top talents globally, he is planning to continue his learning journey at AIHR. Next on his list of courses are Strategic HR Metrics and Building a People Analytics Strategy.

Since speaking to AIHR, Trung has moved into an HR Transformation Manager role at VNG Corporation. We can’t wait to see what achievements his drive and commitment to personal development will help him attain.
