Good news is that organizations can increase employee retention using data-driven intervention strategies. This course focuses on data acquisition from multiple HR sources, exploring and deriving new features, building and validating a logistic regression model, and finally, show how to calculate ROI for a potential retention strategy.

You will learn how to calculate turnover rate and explore turnover rate across different dimensions. You will also identify talent segments for your analysis and bring together relevant data from multiple HR data sources to derive more useful insights.
