Payroll and HR analytics FAQs

HR analytics involves gathering, analysing, and applying your HR data—from recruiting, talent management, performance, retention and more—to improve decision-making. 


HR analytics software help HR professionals better understand their workforce by providing advanced insights that allow them to create more engaged teams with better performance—ultimately to benefit the organisation a whole. 

People analytics and HR analytics are terms used interchangeably, and in many contexts mean the same thing. But there can be some differences. HR analytics is more traditionally focused on data related to HR functions and is focused on improving processes, such as recruitment, training, payroll, or compliance. 


People analytics, on the other hand, is used to answer more complex questions. It has a broader view of HR strategy and focuses on areas such as workforce planning, employee engagement, talent development, or predictive modelling. 

HR and people analytics can help you improve every aspect of your people processes when used correctly. Here’s a few examples: 

  1. Employee retention: analysing turnover data and help you uncover the underlying reasons for employee departures, so you can create targeted strategies to improve retention. 
  2. Workforce planning: analytics can forecast staffing needs and help to optimise your workforce distribution, helping you to prepare for future talent requirements. 
  3. Employee engagement: surveys and other engagement data can be analysed to understand employee satisfaction, and what areas you need to improve to build higher engagement. 
  4. Performance management: evaluating performance data can identify your high performers and inform the development of targeted training programmes.  

Payroll analytics is the process of using data to find trends, patterns, and insights that can lead to more informed decisions and improved payroll processes. This can involve analysing everything from payment accuracy to overtime costs, and employee benefits to cost variances. 

Using payroll analytics will help you to uncover inefficiencies, find potential savings, and contribute to more strategic planning for all things relating to people and payroll.  

When partnering with Cintra, you’ll get a real-time view of your payroll data as soon as it’s entered into the platform. You’ll see instant total costs and variances for your current pay period. 

When using Cintra Groups, you’ll also gain a real-time window into your entire pay cycle as managers enter payroll data for their teams.  With Groups, you no longer have to wait for spreadsheets, do all the tricky admin yourself, or wait until month-end to access a view of your payroll via reports. 

Payroll analytics can help you improve the overall accuracy and efficiency of your payroll processes. Here’s a few examples: 

  1. Payment accuracy: identifying and reducing errors in payment helps to make sure employees are paid accurately and on-time, while reducing the cost of mistakes. 
  2. Budget forecasting: with accurate payroll data, you can better forecast future payroll expenses and make more informed financial decisions. 
  3. Strategic decision making: payroll analytics can inform decisions such as workforce expansion, pay scale adjustments, and investment into employee development. 
  4. Pay equity: analytics can be used to audit and ensure equitable pay across your organisation, addressing disparities and promoting fairness.
