Case Study: Building a Data Dictionary
Get Trustworthy Information from your PA Program by Building a Data Dictionary to Establish Data Consistency
One of the first challenges HR practitioners encounter when establishing a PA program is the lack of consistency regarding the meaning of even the most basic information. Unless there is a common set of definitions across the organization, any data pulled will be incorrect. Shore up the data integrity in your PA program by:
- Working with department heads to identify which terms are being interpreted differently
- Getting buy-in regarding what the definitions should be
- Synthesizing the resulting definitions into a dictionary that is accessible and applies across the organization
Be sure you can trust your HR data by building a data dictionary
