It is clear that hard facts, data, and analytics are the language of today’s business leaders. From sales revenue optimization to just-in-time supply chain management, functions across the enterprise are using numbers to transform their approach to business execution. With unparalleled access to information – billions of data points sit within HRIS, talent, financial, and operational systems – HR has a similar opportunity. Armed with real-time metrics, issue- specific analytics and strategic workforce plans, HR can establish its own “BizX” culture, improving the alignment between talent management decisions and strategic outcomes. Join Peter Howes as he opens the conference by challenging the audience to rethink how HR strategy can achieve business goals through the use of data.
