Organisations today are increasingly becoming globalised and facing VUCA (vulnerability, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity) in the business environment. Under such conditions, making the right decisions and sustaining competitive advantage are the goals of any organisation. Business analytics has emerged as an important tool to address these goals.   Research literature and reports suggest that application of analytics to manage human resources (HR) in an organisation is minimal. In view of this, research is undertaken to study the current scenario of HR analytics in the Indian context and to identify factors that influence the acceptance of analytics among HR professionals. This paper discusses the results of qualitative phase which is based on interviews conducted among HR professionals.
