People Analytics involves the intersection of people and data in the workplace. It is understanding what your data says about your people and then using that data to drive people-related decisions, such as hiring, training, promotion, policies, work-flow, team design, climate, customers, and compensation. Minerva leverages people analytics to help your organization identify areas of strength and opportunities to increase your business’ performance and profitability, while minimizing your business’ operating cost and legal exposures.

Human Resources/Personnel Policy and Procedures Design. A personnel policy and procedure manual provides guidelines for the consistent and uniform administration of your management policies. Having a well-written personnel policy and procedure manual helps ensure that your organization is in compliance with applicable business laws and that your HR administration is uniform, fair, and effective. Minerva consultants are experts in designing policy and procedure manuals to meet an organization’s unique needs.
Evaluating Current Human Resources/Personnel Management Practices. Periodic evaluation of an organization’s personnel management practices ensures that HR is maximizing its contribution to the well-being of the organization. When we talk about evaluation in this context, we mean a systematic and analytic examination of current practices with the goal of assessing the effects of those practices as well as identifying areas of opportunity. This kind of evaluation determines whether HR practices are aligned with the strategic goals of the organization and whether employees are satisfied and motivated. By using a variety of metrics, Minerva is able to assess efficacy of your HR practices as a whole. Some of the metrics and tools we use include: the classic four-level Kirkpatrick approach, ROI (return on investment), and comparison with control groups.
Survey Design and Analysis. Many questions can be answered with a survey. Questions such as ‘why are my top people leaving’, ‘how can I increase customer loyalty’, ‘are our current procedures effective’, ‘does the community view us as supportive’, and many more. Minerva consultants have years of experience in executing every step of a survey project plan from conducting focus groups to determining what questions should be asked to analysis and presentation of the findings. We help you decide how best to administer your survey. We use stringent methodologies to collect a representative sample and advanced statistics to turn the data into meaningful information.
Government Compliance. Good management principles can help an organization stay out of court. One good principle is being in compliance with government laws and regulations. Compliance is essentially a matter of following the rules. The rules, however, are myriad and ensuring compliance can be difficult. Having an outside party, such as Minerva, to conduct audits of your personnel management and safety systems can prevent costly litigation expenses. We provide actionable summaries of audit findings and specify remedial measures to fix any noncompliance found. As a further preventative, we can help you establish a software system for tracking detailed information, such as training opportunities provided, that are relevant to compliance.
