HR Analytic Competencies: A Comparison of Developed Versus Developing Country HR Practitioner Skill Sets
HR analytic competency are an important pillar for moving HR from transactional to strategic. The value in understanding this skill base across International Human Resource Management is important as HR strategic influence permeates abroad. The study took a segment of the Human Resources Competency Study 360 scores of HR practitioners and data on country developing status from the UN World Economic Situation and Prospects (WESP). This research looked specifically at the HR analytic competency in the context of the practitioner’s location – developed versus developing countries. The research also considered where within the organization (e.g. closer to strategic level management) such skills are needed, in assessing the differences in scores from different rater levels (executive vs. non-executive raters). The results indicate that those in developing countries present higher perceived analytic skills on the Human Resource Competency Study than those from developed nations. These and other results regarding rater level are discussed.
