These professionals are known to fill various specialised job titles such as “Data Scientist”, “Talent Analytics Director” and “Diversity Analytics Specialist”.

In India, 14 per cent of total jobs in HR are analytics based, signifying that companies are increasingly trying to arm their HR functions with analytical capabilities with talent as their focus area.
