Progetto di ricerca


The rise of the 4.0 paradigm has led to a radical digital transformation into companies that increasingly produces a change in business processes, which become able to take advantage of the intelligence introduced by digital technologies in most of the company’s activities.

The growth in the number of information sources available and the relative amount of data produced, together with the availability of more powerful and affordable processing and storage technology, has brought awareness in large companies of how Big Data analysis can represent a source of competitive advantage and a tool of evolution of the same business model. HR Management is not excluded from this phenomenon and, on the contrary, the continuous digitalization of the relationship models between company and employees makes an increasing number of information available to the Human Resources function, which can be enhanced through new tools and methodologies to improve the attractiveness, evaluation and development of human capital.

This project aims to develop Human Resource Management in a data-driven sense and to explain its impact on business and therefore on business performance. For this purpose the innovative instrumentation provided by People Analytics will be used, consisting of data, skills, techniques and data analysis software
