Why is this course relevant?

Fact-based decision-making is the new norm in successful and innovative HR organizations. But the insights gathered from low-quality data are barely better than gut feeling. If there’s any doubt about the integrity of your input data, stakeholders will question every result you present them. That's why we need to avoid any doubts about the integrity and availability of your HR data.

By learning to assess the quality of your HR data and how to implement changes to improve data integrity, you are giving your organization access to a powerful strategic resource — and you will be prepared when someone questions the integrity of your data.

Why is this course not sold individually?

To optimize the quality of your learning experience, the Global HR Data Integrity course is not available for standalone enrollment. The course is part of our HR Metrics & Dashboarding Certificate Program and also included with the Full Academy Access License.

Why is data integrity relevant to HR?

Safeguarding the integrity of HR data requires more than just IT savvy and a solid understanding of global data privacy laws. When working with data sourced from multiple countries, you will soon run into challenges that are more cultural than digital. As the traditional stewards of organizational culture, HR professionals are ideally suited to helping achieve data integrity at a global scale.
