Abstract

Although people analytics is a fast-emerging field with importance to HRD, HRD researchers still lack a comprehensive understanding of it. This study examines the current body of knowledge in people analytics through the lens of human resource (HR) development by performing an integrative literature review of 91 articles. This study identifies five categories of knowledge: (1) definitions and boundaries of terms, (2) building blocks of people analytics in organizations, (3) types of analytics, (4) ethical issues related to people analytics, and (5) applications of people analytics to the HRD field. This study makes theoretical and practical contributions to the field of HR development by exploring the current state of people analytics and people analytics’ application to HR development practice. It also enhances scholars’ understanding of people analytics within HR development boundaries and provides insights for future research. Finally, this study provides practical guidance for HR development practitioners seeking to leverage people analytics in their work.
