Evidence based decision making is a pillar of the business world and too long has HR been exempt from making the same qualitative business cases as other functions. This is shifting in both the regulatory and corporate markets. We need to speak the language of data and create objective and fair workplaces that drive real tangible value. In this session with speaker Travis Windling we will explore how to create a sustainable plan to derive tangible insights from your workforce.
