Adult social care providers


Your workforce is your largest overhead, your biggest asset and probably one of your greatest challenges.  

Workforce intelligence is not just about collecting data, but about using that data to make smart decisions about your workforce and driving your HR decisions.  It's also about interpreting data to make it meaningful to you.

Leaders and managers need workforce intelligence because it;

  • allows you to make decisions based on hard facts rather than gut instinct
  • it highlights trends and patterns in your workforce’s behaviour and wider organisation
  • allows you to compare yourself with other organisations to see how you're doing.

Good HR systems will allow you to access this information quickly and easily. This is where the National Minimum Data Set for Social Care comes in.
