Tucareers' analytics driven Framework

Workforce analytics (also called people analytics or HR analytics) is an upcoming approach which brings an engineering rigor to HR for improving individual and organizational performance. Modern age organizations (e.g. Google) are using the approach extensively (Sullivan, John, 2013) in managing their human resources across applications like resource selection, allocation and given its predictive capabilities even in performance management and attrition control initiatives.

We at Tucareers.com bring this analytical rigor in the personal sphere for career and education related decision making. The “Success Analytics” framework is designed to help discover for a career decision maker the best set of career and education options which can give you the maximum chances of success and satisfaction.  Application of decision theory tools, a structured framework and model based approach helps identify the right environment for an individual to thrive and excel. Accurate machine learning based learning algorithms ensure, that the individual’s strengths, preferred personality, interests and other important attributes as identified by research are all leveraged and used to make the recommendations.

The Tucareers.com platform is build on the knowledge base of O*NET (Occupational Information Network), which is USA’s primary source of occupational information. As O*NET also is increasingly becoming used internationally (National Center for O*NET development, 2011) our research shows it is a good reference in an International context as well.  The tucareers framework uses a unique model driven approach, build on research in career theories and multi criterion decision making to increase the decision value multifold (five times) when compared with the free tools that O*NET provides for career decision making (published as part of Tucareers founder's thesis work for his PhD)

A cultural evaluation, for use of O*NET in an international context (study reference in India), has also been undertaken and shown to decrease career difficulties in management students by up to 40% in a single career intervention. Findings of the cultural evaluation has been published in the International Journal of Educational and Vocational guidance ( Bhatnagar, 2018) , the leading career decision making journal from IAEVG the nodal body globally for educational and vocational guidance.

In the next blog we look at the changing career paradigms and the emerging need for career guidance across an individuals lifetime.
