Our Mission

Predictive People Analytics (PPA) aims at creating a platform for knowledge exchange between academia and firms on current trends in HR practices, issues, and opportunities.

Why we care

While human capital is universally recognized as a crucial factor for firms' success, it is hard to measure and non-trivial to harness. In addition, modern firms face new challenges and opportunities, as technological progress is changing the workplace.

Our Promise

PPA brings together academic researchers and HR professionals to generate new insights and develop tools by leveraging big data and state-of-the-art economic research methods.
