Abstract: The HR world is abuzz with talk of big data and the transformative potential of HR analytics. This article takes issue with optimistic accounts which hail HR analytics as a ‘must have’ capability that will ensure HR’s future as a strategic management function while transforming organisational performance for the better. It argues that unless the HR profession wises up to both the potential and drawbacks of this emerging field, and engages operationally and strategically to develop better methods and approaches, it is unlikely that existing practices of HR analytics will deliver transformational change. Indeed, it is possible that current trends will seal the exclusion of HR from strategic, board level influence while doing little to benefit organisations and actively damaging the interests of employees.
