Analytics and Big Data in Human Resources: a study through the prism of the notion of justification



The contrast between the significance of the concepts of analytics and big data human resources (HR) in current managerial discourse and the low number of academic works on the subject invites us to question the reality of the change introduced by these concepts. By mobilizing the concept of justification to analyze participant observation supplemented by ten semi-structured interviews, the authors show that HR analytics systems are the subject of speeches similar to those on reporting, whereas big HR data give rise to new justifications. This therefore invites us to conclude that HR analytics does not constitute a real breakthrough, while HR big data corresponds to real change.
