Building a People Analytics Function Aligned to Business Impact


Ask any HR leader today, and they’ll likely acknowledge the importance of analytics in driving people decisions. Yet when given the opportunity and even the insights themselves, many leaders still struggle to engage and use data to inform their decision-making. And when they do, the impact is often limited to foundational HR initiatives that don’t directly drive the business. This is often due to People Analytics functions developing the necessary infrastructure (tools, technology, skills, data) but struggling to find and seize opportunities to embed in and drive every part of the business beyond HR.
In this session, you will:

  • Understand where you fall on the People Analytics maturity curve, and how best to navigate it for sustainable growth.
  • Learn simple tactics for working through your HR partners to identify new opportunities for impact.
  • See examples of impactful analytics engagements that help the business make data-driven decisions.
