Presentation: Converting HR Analytics to Action

HR has the data to draw insights, build business cases & transform our professional function. However, buried under a pile of under-leveraged, often inaccurate data sets, organizations struggle to take meaningful action. 


Matt will shed light on how HR analytics can be converted into action. At his presentation he will discuss the following topics:
  • How to develop an HR Analytics philosophy that drives results & builds alignment (illuminate, don't punish)
  • The 'new' core competencies for successful HR analytics leaders (simplify, curate & tell stories)
