Big data analytics looks at large amounts of data to uncover hidden patterns and other insights to help improve business performance. The concept of big data has been around for years and most organisations now understand that if they capture all the data that streams into their businesses, they can apply analytics and get significant value from it. There’s no question that data is changing the way businesses work.
Perhaps the most significant advantage of data analysis is the opportunity for cost reduction because data can help identify more efficient ways of doing business. Faster, better decision making is another advantage. The speed of some technologies, combined with the ability to analyse data in real time, allows businesses to make immediate decisions based on what they’ve learned.

With more millennials entering the industry as baby boomers retire, more and more communication tools to are emerging and changing the internal communication landscape forever. For a company here, it’s a matter of having a variety of vehicles that will resonate with different generations and choosing the one that best fits in: with more mobile usage, more remote workers and new tech platforms popping up to better serve internal communications, companies need to balance the speed of change with personal connection.

Wimbledon is emblematic of a brand in which the values are lived and breathed.
But that is just the tip of the iceberg, beneath which sits a complex structure of non-permanent and permanent staff and volunteers, as well as everyone from broadcasters to debenture holders and fans camping overnight for tickets, expected to participate in requisite conduct. What can an HR team learn from Wimbledon’s unfaltering appeal?
