Using R, the Tidyverse, H2O, and Shiny to reduce employee attrition - Matt Dancho

January 25, 2019 Matt Dancho
An organization that loses 200 high-performing employees per year has a lost productivity cost of about $15M/year. This cost is massive, yet many organizations don’t know it exists. It doesn’t show up on a financial statement. Therefore, it goes unnoticed. This presentation showcases how several open source tools integrate to form a solution to the employee attrition problem. Specifically: (1) How the tidyverse enables problem identification through visualization. (2) How recipes + H2O can be combined to explain key relationships to attrition and predict employee attrition. (3) How Shiny can be used to create a powerful dashboard that empowers business leaders to make data-driven decisions across the organization.
