West Toronto: 06.16.21 VIRTUAL How to do HR Analytics with no New Investments

Event Description

Over the past few years it's become clear that the key to people analytics is not big data or big technology. It's addressing relevant business issues using the available data in an intelligent way. That's why you can make progress on analytics without new investments, it's all about empowering HR pros to bring an analytical approach to their work.

Learning Objectives

  • How to separate out the slow world of advanced analytics & dashboards, from the fast world of "everyday analytics"
  • How to recognize the analytics work you are already doing, but isn't called analytics
  • Why is "evidence-based management" a better framework than "analytics" for all HR departments?
  • What are the first steps into getting analytics "wins" without an investment in new technology or data scientists?
