The Collaborative Art and Science of People Planning

March 7-9, 2017 | Miami, Florida

2017 Workforce Planning & People Analytics Conference

HR leaders stand at the intersection of the art and science of people planning. They are tasked with translating business goals into measurable HR metrics that can be tracked and analyzed with technology. They are also responsible for translating those metrics into a useful narrative that other business leaders can use to guide future progress. 

At HCI’s 2017 Workforce Planning & People Analytics Conference, discover how leaders across various industries have embraced the role of artist and scientist. You’ll hear stories of organizational transformation and business success, through the lens of effective workforce planning. You’ll experience how data-driven decision-making has changed the way companies do business, and you’ll walk away with knowledge of the latest trends and best practices to begin moving your business into the future.

Only 20% of HR practitioners report that their leaders are building talent and people strategies on a foundation of measurable, data-driven insights. Join us for the Workforce Planning & People Analytics Conference to take the guesswork out of planning for your most valuable resource.

Make the Case to Attend the 2017 Workforce Planning & People Analytics Conference

Make plans to attend HCI's 2017 Workforce Planning & People Analytics Conference.

Who Should Attend?

The conference will bring together HR executives, strategic planners, analytics specialists, and business leaders to better understand the mix of hard and soft skills needed to make smarter, data-driven talent decisions to drive business impact.

  • Human Resources, Talent Management - Workforce planning and analytics done well generates new information and insights about talent and allows HR professionals to contribute to business strategy, rather than simply executing it. To do so, HR needs business acumen and analytical competence.

  • Workforce Planning Researchers and Analysts/Organizational Design and Development - Talent strategy and workforce planning doesn’t stand still. Even if you’ve been in the workforce for a long time, you need to see the cutting-edge practices of your peers.

  • Recruitment and Staffing - Workforce planning and analytics provides a disciplined approach to identifying critical roles, aligning talent priorities with business priorities, and weighing the options to buy, build, borrow or rent talent. SWP enables leaders to see the long-term impacts of alternative staffing strategies so they can optimize results and limit human capital risk.

  • Executives and Line Managers - While it’s impossible to predict the world, it is possible to identify the range of circumstances your business must prepare for and weigh the risks and opportunities. Having a talent strategy helps leaders prepare for game-changing developments so they are poised to execute more effectively than their competitors.

Why Should You Attend?

HR is, at its core, a people-centric function. The art of people planning is HR’s ability to cross interdepartmental boundaries in an organization and speak in a multitude of languages. You already know the value of people planning. Become an influencer by communicating this value to the CEO and CFO by speaking their language.

Effective people planning requires more than intuition. In today’s digital business environment, the amount of data available to business leaders is unprecedented. Likewise, there are more technological solutions than ever before to help you aggregate and curate that data to tell meaningful stories and take action.

The conference will help you:

  • Engage the business for more holistic people planning

  • Fine-tune the workforce planning process for more accurate futurecasting

  • Use predictive analytics to gain deeper insights into your future workforce
