Abstract

The digitalization of business processes has led to the availability of (big) data which increasingly allows firms to analyse their workforce using HR analytics. On the basis of a cross-national multi-level analysis and a dataset that covers more than 20,000 firms in all member states of the European Union we investigate the reasons why some firms make use of HR analytics to monitor employee performance while others refrain from doing so. We show that the use of HR analytics depends upon firm characteristics as well as contextual factors. In terms of firm characteristics, we find that firms require the structural and managerial capability to make use of HR analytics. For contextual factors, our findings show that some market factors motivate firms to make use of HR analytics while the institutional, i.e. juridico-political, and cultural environment in which firms are embedded influences firms’ opportunities to use HR analytics.
