Big Data HR Analytical Insights – Large Organization Performance and Growth Over a Period – Part 2

In continuation to the last post which was published last week BigDataHR_Part1, today I would like to highlight further insights on what happened when the organization went with penalizing mood for the average performers and rewarding higher performers. However, this was for one of their average earning revenue division over a period of time, herein also, organization has expected that growth will be exponential. But, it was for the shorter period (it took some momentum and pushed the division growth to good number) what happened later, whether growth momentum continued, again herein, I tried to summarize through below graph.


If actual growth momentum that was observed initially would have continued, then, organization’s business growth (cycle) should have taken the green line of business growth curve, since, now no more exists that heavy tyre as explained in the last post BigDataHR_Part1, that can push its pace down. However, it took course of red line, that resembling initial pick up in growth followed by flat line there after; one of the main reasons for this was that after certain period, high performer’s couldn’t alone drive growth with out the support of average performers was very clear in observation.

Big Data HR Analytical Insights – Large Organization Performance and Growth Over a Period – Part 1

Below graph, explains the summary of analytical insights obtained from a large organization’s performance data with respect to growth over a period of time. Presented results are obtained from one of their high revenue division, wherein, first identification of high performers and average performers happened. Said organization had rewarded their high performers promptly with larger benefits expecting that growth will be exponential. But, to surprise, next year they didn’t observed expected growth in the division. However, ignoring it, the same has been continued for the coming year, yet, not seen expected growth. Continuing the same policy, organization thought of giving a data-driven approach about what was happening?


When observed such large division performance and growth data over a period of time, following insights came out, which I tried to summarize through above graph. Organization was expecting a exponential form of growth curve year after year which is represented by green line of business growth (cycle) driven by rewarding high performer’s timely. However, organization had a large number of average performers, though they are not rewarded as good as compared to high performers, organization’s resource utilization towards them got out weighted such that high performers alone were unable to drive the growth cycle and it tilted down entire growth cycle to take slow paced curvy linear growth curve represented by red line.
