Since its inception in the previous forms of traditional measurement sources for distinct sub-functions, human resource analytics (HRA) has come a long way. With the growing importance of analytics in human resource management, research in this area has gained traction. The vast majority of this research remains unexplored. This study conducted a comprehensive literature evaluation of 62 peer-reviewed published research publications to offer a narrative overview of HRA research during the previous decade and highlight research gaps. HRA research is divided into six primary research categories in order to provide an overview of the major contributions of current HRA research and to identify research needs. Concrete directions for further empirical research are suggested as a result of the identified deficiencies.
The Systematics Literature Review (SLR) yielded major themes that included Evolution and Conceptualization, Antecedent, Process, Facilitators and Inhibitors of HRA, Technology as Enabler, Impact of HRA, and Other Themes such as HR Strategy, employee effort and collaboration, Human Resource Management Information System (HRMIS), Organization Work Environment, Employee Learning Activity, Enhancing the Impact of People Analytics, Talent Retention, Decision Support System (DSS), Evidenced based HR. The paper uses resource Based View (RBV) to describe the notion of HRA, integrating a number of definitions of HRA.
