Application of Data Mining Classification in Employee Performance Prediction

  title={Application of Data Mining Classification in Employee Performance Prediction},
  author={John M. Kirimi and Christopher A. Moturi},
  journal={International Journal of Computer Applications},
In emerging knowledge economies such as Kenya, organizations rely heavily on their human capital to build value. Consequently, performance management at the individual employee level is essential and the business case for implementing a system to measure and improve employee performance is strong. Data Mining can be used for knowledge discovery of interest in Human Resources Management (HRM). We used the Data Mining classification technique for the extraction of knowledge significant for…
