Beyond Storytelling: Sustaining Stakeholder Engagement in Workforce Planning & Analytics

Does this sound familiar: You slave away on a workforce planning or analytics project for three days, three weeks, three months or longer, and then you present your findings to your stakeholders and hear them respond, “This is some great work, thank you!,” but they neither follow up nor attempt any action planning?

Why did you invest all this time and make all these brilliant recommendations if no one is interested in implementing them? Your stakeholders may ask for a refresh on the data you initially analyzed, but they remain uninterested in implementing changes.

This session is about changing the narrative.  Learn how to keep your stakeholders actively engaged using analytics regularly. Help them see you as a trustworthy, integral partner. Move from telling a story with data one time, to keeping the conversation going so that you can make real change.  This session will cover:

  • How to hook your stakeholders so that they keep coming back for more
  • How to go from telling a single story with data to enabling ongoing, continuous, actionable insights
  • Why building trust must be the foundation behind everything you do
  • What business partners consider “table stakes” and what you need to do to move beyond that
